PG-13 for some suggestive content and innuendo. In theaters 9/27. Ok for kids 13+. http://www.sonyclassics.com/austenland/

Heads up, Jane Austen fans! This sweet romantic comedy directed by Jerusha Hess stars Keri Russell as 30-something Jane Hayes, a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with Mr. Darcy - as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice." But it's ruining her love life, because no real man can compare. When she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. "Twilight" writer Stephenie Meyer produced this cute film, which also stars JJ Field, Bret McKenzie, Jane Seymour and Jennifer Coolidge as a hilarious Austenland guest.
