The screenplay, adapted from the novel of the same name by Karen Joy Fowler , focuses on a book club formed specifically to discuss the six novels written by Jane Austen. As they delve into Austen's literature, the club members find themselves dealing with life experiences that parallel the themes of the books they are reading. Bernadette plans to have six members discuss all of Austen's six novels, with each member hosting the group once a month. Also inducted into the club are Sylvia Amy Brenneman , a fortysomething librarian recently separated from her philandering lawyer husband Daniel Jimmy Smits after over two decades of marriage; Sylvia's something lesbian daughter Allegra Maggie Grace ; Jocelyn Maria Bello , a happily unmarried control freak and breeder of Rhodesian Ridgebacks , and Sylvia's friend since childhood; and Grigg Hugh Dancy , a science fiction fan invited into the group by Jocelyn with the hope to match him with Sylvia. As the months pass, each of the members develops characteristics similar to those of Austen's characters, and reacts to events in their lives similarly to their fictional counterparts.
Jane Austen wrote six novels, which are pillars of English literature in spite of being delightful, wise, warm and beloved. Robin Swicord's "The Jane Austen Book Club" centers on its six members, who meet over six months to discuss the novels, which seem to have an uncanny relevance to events in their own lives, just as the newspaper horoscope always seems to be about you. No, it is not necessary to have read the novels or seen all the Jane Austen movie adaptations, but that would add another dimension to your appreciation of this film. What you need to know is that Austen is usually concerned about her heroine's struggle to find the right romantic partner for her , despite her rivals, class prejudice, her own diffidence, the blindness of her loved one, the obstinacy of her family and economic necessities. You could, but I would not, because I despise those terms as sexist and ignorant.
