A Mini-Break with Mr. Darcy at “Austenland”…Ramble


I had the delightful pleasure of going to a screening of Sony Classic Pictures’ new film “Austenland” starring Keri Russell, who really has had a lot of exceptional roles in smaller films. In this film she is a huge Jane Austen who decides to spend her life savings on a “game changer” vacation to “Austenland”. It turns out to be a bit of a degrading experience for her since she could only afford the “crap copper package.”

This hilarious and charming romp had the audience laughing from the start. As a “Jane-ite” I love finding new ways of interpreting her works into the modern world. Let the charm carry you away:

And, lesson learned, I should have stuck to my first instinct to take a selfie because this is a fuzzy hot mess. Still, I finally got my hands on Mr. Darcy!
