The Jane Austen Book Club does the festival thang


Alert Janeite Elizabeth posted in comments that the film will be screened at the Dietrich Theater’s Film Festival in Tunkhannock, PA. The screening will be on Friday, September 14, at 7 p.m. and reservations are required.

As we previously reported, the film also will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday, September 9 at 9:30 p.m. The Torontoist has a preview:

Most entertaining is Hugh Dancy (whose character’s adoration of science-fiction gives a “guy window” into a movie that’s obviously targeting a female audience), who gets laughs with just about everything he says or does on screen. Elsewhere, Jimmy Smits again shows that he improves any movie in which he appears

This all sounds good, and we’ll ignore some of the other bad jokes (we hope they were jokes) in the rest of the preview.
