24 of #52FilmsByWomen: Austenland


Austenland (2013, directed by Jerusha Hess, written by Jerusha Hess and Shannon Hale)

[No. 24 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen]

Jane Austen novels are probably the main reason why the Victorian period in England is romanticised by so many people. Despite the fact that most people living in that area are  poor, unemployed and vulnerable to crime and disease. Nevertheless, for the few lucky people who are born among upper-class noble-people as depicted in Austen’s books, their lives are quite fascinating to us today.

So what if there’s a kind of vacation where you transport yourself into such a world? No cellphones, TV or the internet. But you might get to meet your own Mr. Darcy! Kerri Russel plays Jane, a lifelong fan of Jane Austen who goes on a vacation to Austenland.
