Keri Russell is taking an obsession with Jane Austen to the next level in the new trailer for
Thestar plays Jane, a contemporary New Yorker who has practically devoted her life to the works of Austen, the 19th century British novelist known for novels like "Pride and Predjudice," "Sense and Sensibility" and "Emma." The modern-day Jane even keeps a life-sized cardboard cut-out of as the classic Austen character Mr. Darcy in her bedroom.
Naturally, Jane sets off to Austenland, a British historical resort based off of the classic author's writings, where she makes new friends played by Jane Seymour and Jennifer Coolidge while finding time for a little romance along the way.
"Austenland" is based off of the 2007 best-selling novel of the same name by Shannon Hale. It was helmed by first-time director Jerusha Hess (best known for writing the screenplay to "Napoleon Dynamite") and produced by "Twilight" author.
The film made its debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where it received a cold response from Variety.
"Austenland" will next be screened at the Maine International Festival before going on to a limited release in New York and Los Angeles on August 16.
