Be sure to enter MBE's Austenland Gift Basket Giveaway
This review is a follow up to the Sony Pictures Austenland new release launch party I attended at Frederic Fekkai salon on Melrose Place in West Hollywood. Austenland was an Official Selection at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival as well as a theatrical release on the big screen last year is this comedy romance revolving around Jane Hayes (wonderfully played by Keri Russell). As the story unfolds, our protaganist is sidetracked from finding true love, thanks to her obsession with Pride and Prejudice and just about everything else Jane Austen.

But, make no mistake about it, Austenland is closer to a modern day Fantasy Island than either of those real-life attractions that have endured.

Enter the regal Mr. Henry Nobley (J.J. Feild) and the simple farm boy Martin (Brett McKenzie) -- what could be more interesting than having two guys at each end of the socio economic divide simultaneously pursuing the same pretty poor girl? The plot will indeed thicken. Just like Jane, as you watch this you may sometimes forget this is not the 19th Century any more and you'll likely have a bit of a challenge sorting out where the fantasy ends and real life begins.
