There’s not much sense, and dubious sensibility, in looking for true love at a fantasy camp for fiction fans. But that doesn’t hold anyone back in Austenland, a comedy (based on Shannon Hale’s novel) about women hunting for soul mates at a Jane Austen reenactment event. ”They are trading in all low-slung jeans and eyeliner for petticoats and corsets and bad bun hairstyles to be fake-romanced by the accented Austen heroes,” says Keri Russell, who plays the leader of the lonelyhearts. ”They know it’s all a lie but still fall in love with these guys.” One of the film’s producers is Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, who could easily have her own vampire-themed literary retreat someday.
