Synopsis


Austenland
Twilight author Stephenie Meyer makes her first foray into film producing with this romantic comedy about a thirtysomething woman whose lifelong obsession with all things Jane Austen leads her to an eccentric theme park based on the writer's work, and into the company of a handsome young suitor. For as long as she can remember, Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) has treasured the writings of the author behind such literary classics as Emma and Pride & Prejudice. For years, she has been stashing away funds in order to take a trip to Austenland -- a place where die-hard fans can be completely immersed in the elegant world of the beloved writer. When she finally manages to save up enough, she excitedly packs her bags and books a room. Upon arriving, Jane quickly discovers that Austenland is everything she had ever imagined. Every detail is exquisite, save for one small exception: Her limited funds mean that she can't enjoy the same luxury experience as the other, wealthier bachelorettes who currently populate Austenland, but she decides to make the most of her trip regardless. Later, when Jane falls into a romance with a dashing young servant, a lifetime of dreams suddenly begins to come true. Jane Seymour, James Callis, and Jennifer Coolidge co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This is a movie that looks period,but is actually set in the present day..and how she {the heroine of the movie} is a total failure at present day relationships..because she just has her mind set on Mr.Darcy of Pride and Prejudice and no normal guy can ever measure up to her standards..she saves all of her money to go this theme park and it is fun at first...Jane Seymour is really good in her role in this movie....though...I have seen her in much better period films...like Somewhere In Time for instance...but she gives a good performance....but yes is good for a weekend movie and a kinda film you want to keep going back to

    If you are a Jane Austen 'story-telling' fan, as my spouse and I are, this DVD was a foolproof purchase. We both enjoy this author's body of work, perhaps not as fanatically as Kerry Russell in Austenland, but being familiar with all things Austen, we got a big kick, total fun and thorough enjoyment watching this novel video's story as it unfolded to a typical Jane Austen conclusion. We highly recommend this movie to all devoted Jane Austen fans.

    I can relate, however not to the the extreme of being a fan of Mr. Darcy. There is no Darcy like Colin Firth in the BBC edition. The movie was funny and entertaining. I like the theme of the Language and the Manners of the time. However is good to remember the value placed on women in these days, I guess I would rather take my chance in today's society of not being a trade off, or having to find a good financial catch to ensure my lifestyle.

    I LOVE this movie!!! I enjoyed it so much! Jane Seymour is very funny in her role and I loved how over-the-top the movie was. Jennifer Coolidge had me laughing until I cried! The plot twist had me so surprised and I had to watch it again just to see it in the new light. It was a really fun romantic comedy and is right up there with my favorites! I even got my husband to watch it and he laughed too!

    Kerry Russell is enamored with Jane Austen's novels and plans a trip to Austenland, the pseudo-Disneyland for Jane Austen fans. Her adventures, while at this amusement park, are similar to Jane Austen's characters' in her novels, including with Mr. Darcy!

    I really enjoyed this movie. I rented it first not knowing if I would like it and ended up watching it twice before returning it. Wanted to buy this movie for awhile, and Best Buy had the best price around, also had it in stock! I love Jane Austen movies, and liked that it had 21st elements in it. I would love for there to be a sequel.

    If you're a fan of Felicity and Jane Austen with a twist of comedy, this is a great film to see. It's fun to watch as a Jane Austen fan, but it's even better because it makes fun of itself and Jennifer Coolidge just makes everything better. I've enjoyed it every time I've watched!

    I never heard or saw this movie until I was browsing at my local Best Buy store. I saw the title and took a chance since I'm a fan of Austen's works. I'm glad I did, it had numerous references and was funny! I enjoyed it and recommend to anybody who liked the Mama Mia! movie.
