The Jane Austin Book Club

This is a nice little movie with a great ensemble cast, including Emily Blunt, Amy Brenneman, Maria Bello, Jimmy Smits, and Maggie Grace (from Lost). Basically a 'chick flic', which is OK by me, it is about a group of 6 people, 5 women and one man, forming a book club to read and discuss Jane Austin's six book over a six month period. Their lives tend to resemble the books. Since the books end happily, so does the movie, but that is not a bad thing. Recommended.
