I needed something desperately, to fill the void "You Who Came From The Stars" had left. Luckily for me, I had saved up this little gem for the proverbial rainy day. If, like me, you've been in love with "Mr. Darcy" since middle school then this is definitely your cup of tea. Austenland is a British-American romantic comedy film. It stars Keri Russell [she was in Felicity] as Jane Hayes, a single thirty-something obsessed with Jane Austen's 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice. She is obsessed with Colin Firth's portrayal of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice and wishes for a nice Englishman of her own. After her boyfriend breaks up with her, Jane decides to spend all her savings on a trip to a Jane Austen-themed resort in Austenland, England. As run by Mrs. Wattlesbrook [Jane Seymour], the guests at Austenland choose to be called by an imaginary name, must dress in period costume and conduct themselves like ladies without modern conveniences; though the plumbing is modern. Activities include needlepoint, riding, reading, shooting and entertaining the other guests through musical performances or theatrics. Not short of eye-candy, It also stars Bret McKenzie as Martin [Flight of the Concords], yes there is no Martin in Pride & Prejudice, he is the equivalent of Mr. Wickham and JJ Fields as it's very own version of "Mr. Darcy". At the conclusion of each guest's stay a ball is held with a romance guaranteed. @nylamrehs @stephiikins @wondergirl @christy @MasriDaniela @ameliasantos10 @misswhatever @congtuafang @mayurachoi @irelis27 @pandapieee @annbhoi @suranimh @rmbs @monette @amyling @Icscook @daniselane773 @tyta468 @llenzycris @monette @dramacrazy @karen @lymuniroth @hellohi01 @lindalimlinglin @sofeaamrez @deanloveradh @monettesky @lynespanol @gago @allie2013 @bquimzon @mariamatillano @deanloveradh @bitbybit @whilmsky @hufflepuff @nonabisi @ruizangelofluv @hebamaher @Monettesky @yuan20 @krissilva75 @Siennabebs @dawnalvin Watch and see who Jane's real "Darcy" might be.
