Fan, coming from fanatic describes how many people are when it comes to Jane Austen's works. When I heard that Keri Russell was to take the main role in Austenland, based on a story of a girl swept up in a pretend Austen-like world, I was rather fanatic myself.
The reviews are coming out from Sundance, where Austenland was screened, and they have been raving for both the supporting cast and Ms. Russell herself. Described as a broad, original comedy, the film celebrates and kindly juxtaposes the world of Austen and the modern world. I for one, want a ticket when Austenland hits the theaters of the common people.
