Six months. Six novels. Six members. The Jane Austen Book Club takes reading the classics to new heights of passion in this romantic comedy featuring an all-star cast. When five women and one man get together to discuss the English writer's beloved novels, they realize the heartaches of Emma, Mr. Darcy and the Bennet sisters are not so different from their own. Finding comfort, wit and wisdom from the pages and each other, they discover that, in matters of love, all they need to ask is: What would Jane do?

If you want, although it'll spoil some of the story, check out the feature on each character in the movie and who they are a representative of in the world of Jane Austen novels.
If you know Jane Austen in and out, you'll get way more out of this than the average person.
Having said that and this being a chick flick, I found two of the male roles the most interesting. Hugh Dancy as a lovable but bumbling sort of male dropped into this book club world of women is very good. Jimmy Smits (Cane!) is also surprisingly good as a husband who is lost and then finds his way (hopefully I haven't given too much away by saying that here).
Yes, the female roles are good but I only found Kathy Baker and Emily Blunt to be intriguing. The other three I just found to be OK (and I won't say anything more on that).
P.S. One bizarre thing is director Robin Swicord who appears on the extras looks uncanningly like an older Hayley Wickenheiser (Canadian women's hockey star).
If you are a Jane Austen newbie, you may find this boring, as there are tons of references to the books and to the author's life. But someone who knows Austen's work well will find this a light-hearted and enjoyable flick.
