Patreon Post Unlocked: Austenland (2013)


It’s a wonder Kendra never got around to even a mini-review of 2013’s Austenland, since she’s the devoted Jane-ophile of the bunch here at Frock Flicks HQ. Sure, I’ve read all the books, being the English lit geek, but the on-screen versions generally don’t float my boat unless Colin Firth or Emma Thompson are involved. And technically, this flick isn’t an Austen adaption, it’s a modern story of an Austen-obsessed women vacationing at Jane Austen interactive theme park experience of sorts. It’s also HI-LAR-IOUS, maybe even if you haven’t read Austen, but definitely if you have. The Regency-era costumes are also quite good, and there’s a cute rom-com plot for thems that like that sort of thing (JJ Field is adorable as the Darcy-like character, Mr. Henry Nobley).

    I loved the book, was very “meh” about the movie. It was just all over the place, and it seemed like Keri Russell didn’t want to be there.
