The trailer is pretty straight-forward, as the whole production seems to be. The varied women (and man) get together to chat about their chosen books whilst experiencing Austen's themes in their daily life. Assuming that Swicord kept to the book's basic character bios: there's Sylvia (Amy Brenneman) and Daniel (Jimmy Smits), whose marriage is failing, Allegra (Maggie Grace), their lesbian daughter, who is having relationship issues, Prudie (Emily Blunt), who is married (Marc Blucas), yet has a mean wandering eye, Jocelyn (Maria Bello), Sylvia's never-married best friend who finally finds romance, Bernadette, who is deciding to revel in wackiness in her advancing age and Grigg (Hugh Dancy), the male member of the group. (In the novel, Grigg is supposed to be middle-aged, but why have an aging man when you can have a young, British love interest?) It basically looks like the typical female-centric, dysfunctional relationship movie, with literary spice added to change things up, and some food similes to boot: "he looks at me like he's the spoon and I'm the dish of ice cream."
