I honestly wasn't expecting much from it, but I ended up loving it. A movie centered around reading the books of Jane Austen? Yes, please. Plus, this film had an amazing cast.
I loved how the the storyline for the characters weren't that far off from the lives of the characters in Austen's novels. Also, how the books seemed to be helping them in their own lives, whether something inspires them, or whatever.
The film is made up of an eclectic group of characters, which makes the film more interesting. A stand out for me was Emily Brunt as Prudie. I'm already such a big fan of hers and I absolutely loved her in this. I also loved Hugh Dancy as Grigg and Kathy Baker as Bernadette.
I haven't read the book, so I had no idea what to expect from this. I'm not too into modern day-type films, but I found myself enjoying this. I found myself laughing at some points and just plain enjoying myself.
