Austenland (2013)

Sony Crackle Synopsis: Jane Hayes’s (Keri Russell) adoration of all things Jane Austen is complicating her love life. Determined to be the heroine of her own story, Jane spends her life savings on a trip to Austenland, an eccentric resort where guests experience complete immersion in the Regency era.

Armed with her bonnet, corset and needlepoint, Jane strives to avoid spinsterhood … but has a difficult time determining where fantasy ends and real life—and maybe even love—begins. Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde) and Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers) also star in this charming romantic comedy.

Why You Should Watch: Austenland is cheeky, romantic, witty, and hilarious. Plus, could there have ever been a better Jane than Keri Russell? 


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

Sony Crackle Synopsis: A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England.

Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper-class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.

Why You Should Watch: If you love genre literary mashups, this movie’s great!

Sense and Sensibility (1995)

Sony Crackle Synopsis: Directed by Oscar® nominee Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), this Academy Award®-winning adaptation by Emma Thompson of Jane Austen’s classic novel tells the story of the Dashwood sisters: pragmatic Elinor (Thompson) and passionate Marianne (Kate Winslet).

When their father dies unexpectedly, his estate must pass by law to his son from his first marriage, leaving Mr. Dashwood’s current wife and daughters without a home and with barely enough money to live on.

As both sisters struggle to find romantic fulfillment in a society obsessed with financial and social status-Elinor with shy, charming Edward (Hugh Grant), and Marianne with either the dashing Willoughby (Greg Wise) or the haunted Colonel Brandon (Alan Rickman)-they must learn to mix sense with sensibility in their dealings with both money and men.

Why You Should Watch: For the fabulous script from Emma Thompson and the perfect performance from Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon.
