There's nothing like the sweetness of a great romantic comedy. And there's also nothing like the horror of a terrible one! I was thrilled yesterday to discover a romantic comedy of the great variety.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Lost in Austen, which was originally a BBC miniseries. The main character, Amanda, is a modern woman who loves the book Pride and Prejudice. She ends up accidentally trading places with Elizabeth Bennett, the main character from the novel. Amanda is suddenly in the setting of her favorite story, trying desperately to ensure the plotline survives her entrance into it.
It's fantasy, and it's messing with an extraordinarily popular, classic author, and it could easily end up being irretrievably corny. But the casting, acting, and writing are all excellent, so instead of being cheesy, it's charming.
Next time you need a girl's night (by yourself or with friends), grab some chocolate and Lost in Austen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
