Austenland is a lively romantic comedy about 30-something, single Jane Hayes (Keri Russell, Waitress), a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her unhealthy obsession with all things Jane Austen. Desperately seeking her own Mr. Darcy, Jane sinks her life savings into a trip to England to stay at an Austen theme manor ruled by Mrs. Wattlesbrook (Jane Seymour) where everything is Austen, including the actors who court the lady visitors with decorous dalliance. Unfortunately, Jane could only afford the cut price package, so she finds herself drably costumed as a poor relation and relegated to flirting with the servants, notably the cute and approachable groom Martin (Bret McKenzie, "Flight of the Conchords"). Russell, earnest in Austen awe and game for the send-up, brings sparkle to the comedy as the woman who gets more than she bargained for when she tries to live her fantasy. Co-starring JJ Feild, James Callis, Jennifer Coolidge and Georgia King. Directed and co-written by Jerusha Hess (co-writer, Napoleon Dynamite), based on the novel by co-writer Shannon Hale.
