The Trailer for Austenland is Here!! Permission to Freak Out Now!

I have been writing about this movie for months and now the trailer is finally here for Austenland. For Jane Austen fanatics, this is the mothership calling you home because this film is really about you. Well a really hyped up exaggerated version of you played by the beautiful and talented Keri Russell (though even she was having trouble pulling off that hairdo.)

It is based on the book by Shannon Hale

Basically she plays a woman obsessed with all things Jane Austen (the romance, the sheep in the meadows, Colin Firth) and that is pretty much all she has going for. She goes to a camp for adults basically where you pretend to be a character in an Austen novel and live like they did then. And then in classic romantic comedy style, her life actually does become like a Jane Austen novel as she is determined to walk away engaged.

The cast includes Jennifer Coolidge (always a hoot) Bret McKenzie (one half of the amazing Flight of the Conchords and Oscar winning writer for The Muppets), Jane Seymour, JJ Field and many other funny people. It is going to be adorable and funny and I am super excited! Plus the last time Keri did a small independent film in the summer was the movie Waitress and that was a hit so she has that going for her (I am still trying to block out August Rush from my memory, however.)
