We Can Get Behind A Jane Austen LARPing Movie [VIDEO]


Austenland is the story of how Keri Russell went Jane Austen LARPing. Not even joking. Guys. It even has a “fake geek girl.” I can’t wait to see this.

    I love the book and am so excited about the film!

    Bugger me with a prize winning leek, I do love Jennifer Coolidge. The trailer looks like good fun, and I haven’t seen Russell in anything since “Waitress”, so I’ll definitely give this a go.

    We were lucky enough to catch this at Sundance in January, and it was SO GOOD. One of the few romantic movies in recent memory that I thoroughly enjoyed, from writing to performances to cinematography. Can’t wait for this to come out – it does justice to fangirls and Jane Austen.

    Also, Brett is adorable.

    I “read” the book on CD….and I listened to it specifically for the FANTASTIC Katherine Kellgren who narrated the audiobook. I’d watch the movie.

    Reminds me of Regency House Party. Looks fun. :)

    I’ve been meaning to read the book- I love the author in general she writes such delightful characters. This trailer looks so adorable too. Must find copy of book!

    This looks fun, I’m a big Austen fan.

    Although once I visited Chawton House (the estate that one of her brothers inherited) as part of a school trip and the tour guide told us that when the American Jane Austen society visited they each insisted on sitting at every seat at the original dining table so that they could say they sat in the same place as Jane Austen.

    Saw the trailer and I ran out to get the book right away- I loved it! (actually is it sad that half way through I got super excited that it was almost like a dating sim) It was a great quick read and I throughly enjoyed the ending
