Austenland- New Movie for all my Jane Fans

This widely successful book was written by Shannon Hale
and adapted into a movie coming out in theaters by you, hopefully 
very soon
(produced by Stephanie Meyers)

This story follows a woman obsessed with the much loved BBC production
of Pride and Prejudice- the 1995 version--(a girl after my own heart) 
and travels to a Jane Austen-styled English resort to either kick her obsession for good
find her perfect gentleman.

This film looks amazingly genius. I just love the image above 
and the clash between 21st and 19th century.

This was just played at Sundance film festival and
Sony pictures bought the rights to show the movie
and will hopefully not keep us waiting for too long.

Keep this lovely on your watch list!
Enjoy the clip below!
JJ Field (Northanger Abbey) and Kerri Russell in the starring role

Sneak Peak Clip:


  1. Oh my goodness. This looks great! I hadn't heard about it yet, so thanks for sharing!

    1. You know I remember hearing about the book awhile back but never read it and I just happened upon a bit of news about this movie and I was like whaaaa? hold the phone everybody--How did I miss hearing about you, my precious???

      heehee can't wait :)

  2. Oh my gosh you just made my day! I hadn't heard about this either, I am SO stoked now. I always thought Keri Russell was ridiculously gorgeous, I am excited she is in this. I am absolutely going to watch out for this one!

    1. P.S. totally with you on the 1995 BBC version kicking the Kiera Knightly one's butt!

    2. Yes, the 95 version (of course) blew the newest one out of the water-although the Knightly/Macfayden had some good parts :)I like Keri too and always loved her in the hallmark movie "Magic of Ordinary Days"...I think she will be good in this one :) Cant wait!

  3. I am surprised that you haven't joined the period drama challenge. When I first learned of it I thought of you. Do you even know about it?
