In the romantic comedy “Austenland,” 30-something, single Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) spends her life savings on a trip to an English resort that caters to Austen-crazed women. While there she realizes that her fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman become more real than she ever could have imagined. Based on the novel by Shannon Hale (who also co-wrote the script), the film was written and directed by Jerusha Hess (writer, “Napoleon Dynamite”) and produced by Stephenie Meyer’s Fickle Fish Films. The film will be shown Monday-Saturday, Oct. 14-19, and is rated PG-13.
