Keri Russell, Jerusha Hess and Stephenie Meyer discuss "Austenland"

"Austenland"

"Napoleon Dynamite" and "Gentleman Broncos" writer Jerusha Hess makes her directorial debut with "Austenland", giving this unashamed "chick flick" her own unique and comic perspective. It stars Keri Russell in an unusual role turn as a nerdy lovelorn Jane Austen fan, who spends her life savings on a full immersion Austen theme land resort. In these video interviews, film journalist Katherine Tulich sits down with Keri Russell, Jerusha Hess and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer whose company, Fickle Fish Films, produced the film.
