That Jane Austen Book Club (movie review)

IMDB database
Explores Austen’s adage that general incivility is at love’s essence. Sylvia’s husband dumps her for another woman, so Bernadette and Jocelyn organize a book club to distract her. They recruit Sylvia’s daughter Allegra; Prudie, a young teacher whose marriage may be on the rocks; and Grigg, a sci-fi fan who joins out of attraction to Jocelyn. The six read and discuss one Austen novel per month.

REVIEW: For Christmas I  asked for all of the Jane Austen movies and this is one that I got. So last night I snuggled in with some popcorn and hot chocolate and my boys and watched it.

From the very beginning I loved it. I liked how they were able to apply what they were reading to their own lives and how Jane Austen had great insight into human nature.

If you are a Jane Austen Fan and love movies adapted from her books than you will love this movie.

I give it a 5 out of 5.
