"What separates the casual Jane Austen fan from the aficionado?"

"I memorised the first three chapters of Pride and Prejudice when I was 13."

Ok then, that will probably do it.

Austenland tells the tale of P&P obsessive Jane Hayes (Keri Russell), whose love of the famous BBC adaptation takes her to a British Jane Austen theme park in search of her own Mr Darcy.

The film doesn't hit UK cinemas until September, but a trailer for the rom-com has been released online:

Co-starring Jennifer Coolidge, aka Stifler's mom and the legendary Jane 'Medicine Woman' Seymour, the film is adapted from Shannon Hale's 2007 novel of the same name.

It also marks Twilight author Stephanie Meyer's debut as a producer, outside her vampire franchise.
