Keri Russell knows her way around a gun. We saw this in “Mission: Impossible 3,” we’re about to see it on the Cold War spy drama “The Americans,” and attendees of the Sundance Film Festival are going to see it for themselves in “Austenland,” Russell’s indie about a woman obsessed with the works of Jane Austen — specifically Colin Firth’s take on the Mr. Darcy character from the BBC production of “Pride and Prejudice” — who indulges her obsession by traveling to an English resort that caters to Austenites.
In this exclusive clip from “Austenland,” Russell’s character, Jane Hayes, shows that she’s a natural in the realm of out-of-circulation Victorian firearms. It’s a quirky clip that gives you a great idea of what the Stephenie Meyer-produced film has in store. Check it out below:
“Austenland” plays at Sundance this week and next, with screenings scheduled for January 18, January 19, January 21, January 22, January 24 and January 26.
