Keri Russell makes the age-old adage “this is why we can’t have nice things” a lifestyle in the trailer for Austenland, a film about a nice single gal who worships at the altar of Jane Austen. Russell plays Jane (ha!), a woman who makes the books and their adaptations the focus of her life, to the point where it’s just getting plain scary. We’ve all seen A&E’s Obsessed. Since she’s not finding love and Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth in the real world, Jane withdraws her life savings and heads to “the world’s only immersive Austen experience,” where she is only able to afford living in the servants’ quarters. So what you’re saying is not everything was great in the past?

The film also stars Jane Seymour as the resort’s owner, J.J. Feild and Bret McKenzie as potential Darcys, and Jennifer Coolidge as a lady at the resort who has never heard of “Pride and Prejudice”. Jerusha Hess co-writes and directs, and Twilight’s Stephenie Meyer produces, proving the woman just loves a good romance.

Do you think this greets you at the entrance to the resort?

Austenland opens in theaters on August 16th.
