The Jane Austen Book Club

Rated Parental Guidance (Mature Theme) ~ Runs 105 minutes

Dir.: Robin Swicord, US, 2007

Maria Bello, Emily Blunt, Kathy Baker

“Please don't call The Jane Austen Book Club a chick flick. That label is usually used in the pejorative sense, to dismiss romantic, too-cute fluff. The Jane Austen Book Club is so much more: smart and self-aware and a dazzling showcase for some of Hollywood's finest actresses of a certain age. This is a hot fudge sundae of a movie, with whipped cream and a cherry on top. But after indulging in it, you won't hate yourself in the morning. Based on the novel, The Jane Austen Book Club follows five women (and a man one of them drags along) as they make their way through Austen's six novels, their own lives taking on resemblances to the author's heady plots. Kathy Baker, Amy Brenneman and Maggie Grace are each terrific in their respective roles, but it's Maria Bello and Emily Blunt who steal the show, as a committed middle-aged singleton and an unhappy young wife, respectively... Everyone is given their due and dignity in this funny, sexy, humanist film that, if it is a chick flick, gives the genre a good name.” - Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
