Austenland - Trailer
Director Jerusha HessYear 2013Genre(s) Dramas
Jane Hayes has, what some might say, an unhealthy obsession with Jane Austen's novels and all things from the Regency era. She's infatuated with Mr. Darcy from 'Pride and Prejudice' - of whom she has a cardboard cut-out portrayed by Colin Firth from the 1995 Emmy winning BBC series - and has filled her bedroom with all manner of Austen-themed memorabilia. After discovering an ultimate Austen experience in England, she puts all her life savings into making the trip there, immersing herself completely in the Regency style excursion and finding her Mr. Darcy. However, it soon becomes clear that living without modern amenities is almost unthinkable and the paradise she imagined is far from bliss. Although she starts to contemplate that she may have wasted all her life savings, she does meet a potential love interest, though he may not be what she was looking for.
'Austenland' is a movie adaptation of the novel of the same name by Shannon Hale who co-wrote the screenplay alongside director Jerusha Hess ('Napoleon Dynamite', 'Gentlemen Broncos'). It tells the story of one girl's desire for true love, but her quest for Mr. Right may not be the fairytale romance she imagined. It will be released in the UK on September 27th 2013.
