Talk about taking your obsessions too far. Modern-day lass Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) is so enamored with Pride and Prejudice that she books a vacation to a Jane Austen theme park in the hopes of finding her very own perfect gentleman.
Writer Jerusha Hess (Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre) takes the helm for the first time with Austenland, and it will be curious to see if her quirky comic sensibilities will match up within the decidedly more romcom framework. But Russell’s presence (so winning in the low-key indie Waitress) should bolster the affair quite nicely. Opens Sept. 13. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
