A single, thirtyish office worker named Jane (Keri Russell), obsessed with the romantic novels of Jane Austen, travels to England and visits the Full-Immersive Austen Experience resort, where she dresses in Regency costume and interacts with paid performers in a stately country house. Stand by for laughs, but gentle ones. Director Jerusha Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. And that’s just fine, because there are already plenty of harmlessly funny situations in Hess and novelist Shannon Hale’s lively send-up of romance-starved modern females and those who cater to them. Able-bodied character support by Jennifer Coolidge, JJ Feild, Georgia King, Brett McKenzie, and Jane Seymour as the landlady, Mrs. Wattlesbrook (97 min.).
