  1. Regarding “Austenland” and the piano scene with the choice of song…

    I wonder if the character of Jane Hayes was supposed to be an avatar for the character of Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice? Miss Bennett was an unconventional female (for her time) who was not going to use her feminine wiles to hook herself a husband; she didn’t care if the wealthy elite saw mud on the hem of her dress, for instance.

    It may be this film is aimed only at the select audience who reads Pride and Prejudice yearly and who imagine themselves finding a Mr. Darcy.

    Despite your negative review, I am looking forward to seeing this in the theater.
