The Jane Austen Book Club
I just watched this movie last night and I now have a new favourite to add to my growing list. There are six book club members, six Austen novels, and six interwoven stories over a period of six months. Set in Sacramento, California, it may not be 19th century England but each character finds echoes of their own lives, predictions, wisdom and warnings in Austen's novels that help guide them along. Now I feel like reading some Jane Austen... The Jane Austen Book Club is a touching story based on the novel by Karen Joy Fowler.
