Thirty-something and single Jane (Keri Russell) has something of an unhealthy obsession with all things Jane Austen. Lucky for her, she’s not alone. Welcome to Austenland, the ultimate getaway for literary devotees, where visitors indulge in Regency-era fantasies provided by the British theme park. Jane sells her car and blows her savings so she can afford a trip to immerse herself in Austen’s world and fulfill her dream of meeting Mr. Darcy (or at least a reasonable approximation). The directorial debut from “Napoleon Dynamite” screenwriter Jerusha Hess is a rollicking romcom that plays up America’s fascination with British culture, featuring a supporting cast including J. J. Feild (“Captain America”), Bret Mackenzie (“Flight of the Concords”) and Jennifer Coolidge (“Legally Blonde”) delivering big laughs. In Person: J. J. Feild (schedule permitting).
