Film recommendation: Austenland

I'm a Jane Austen geek, so when I hear that there's yet another Jane-Austen-themed movie out there, I must seek it out and watch it. A friend recommended Austenland, and I'm so glad she did, because I thoroughly enjoyed it!

...and if you really enjoyed the movie but felt like it ended before the story was over, I highly recommend two pieces of Austenland fanfic, Austenland Extended and e-mails from Austenland. Both stories are hilarious and do a good job of continuing the universe and adding some cute twists, while keeping the characters thoroughly in-character. The latter fic is a clever example of a modern epistolary tale, with very well-drawn original characters, despite their being in the background.
