2007. USA. Dir: Robin Swicord. With Maria Bello, Emily Blunt. 106 min.
Writer/director Swicord (P’09) crafted this romantic ensemble pic about bibliophiles wrapped up in the work of the titular novelist. But check your heady English-major musings at the door; the film lends Austen a sweet, mature (and refreshingly zombie-free) modern relevance. After the film, Swicord will discuss her career and her craft.
