The Jane Austen Book Club
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The Jane Austen Book Club: Romcom starring Kathy Baker, Maria Bello, Emily Blunt, Amy Brenneman, Maggie Grace and Hugh Dancy. Six-time divorcee Bernadette decides to set up a book club to study the six novels written by her favourite author, Jane Austen. The idea is to read and discuss the novels over the course of six months. And so Bernadette invites five fellow Californians to join her on her literary journey: Prudie, a high-school French teacher who is upset because her husband has called off her first trip to France; Sylvia, who is being divorced by Daniel; Sylvia's secretly lesbian daughter Allegra; Jocelyn, who is mourning the death of her beloved dog; and, finally, Grigg, who's more of sci-fi man but nevertheless agrees to sign up. As the months pass, the readers find that their own romantic experiences are echoed in Austen's witty, perceptive works. Edited for content.
