Lost In Austen Trailer Is Literary Vacation

This Exists... Because of A Lady

You’ve probably inserted yourself into a Jane Austen novel once or twice (or a hundred) times in your life but what would you actually do if you literally found yourself in one? This trailer for Lost in Austen shows us we’d probably muck everything up but at least we’d have a good time.

For those not in the know (like me), Lost in Austen was a 2008 British mini-series. The synopsis is as follows: “Amanda, an ardent Jane Austen fan, lives in present day London with her boyfriend Michael, until she finds she’s swapped places with Austen’s fictional creation Elizabeth Bennet.” Hilarity ensues of course. Written by Guy Andrews it stars Jemima Rooper in the starring role and Doctor Who’s Alex Kingston as Mrs. Bennet! Oh and, in case you were wondering, it’s on Netflix instant watch.
