I interviewed Keri Russell, Georgia King, Jane Seymour, JJ Feild & Bret McKenzie about their new film Austenland. I wanted to get their take on the film and asked them the same three questions, and did they each have very different answers. Keri Russell also talks about her own slight obsession; Bret McKenzie talks about his role in The Hobbit; and Jane Seymour tells us which of her personal items can be seen in the movie.
The romantic comedy film is based on the book of the same name by Shannon Hale and stars Russell as the single 30-something Jane Hayes who is obsessed with all things Jane Austen. Using her life savings to vacation at a Jane Austen themed resort in England, Jane finds that sometimes fiction can become a reality.
Austenland is a Sony Pictures Classics film and opens in select theaters in Los Angeles and New York today, August 16, 2013.
