A group of six friends, in Sacramento, gather to distract themselves from loss - a newly dumped Sylvia, Prudie's repressed disappointment, or Jocelyn, who has a life of unrealized dreams. All are devoted Jane Austen fans, except the lone man, Grigg, who has an ulterior motive for joining the chick-lit gang. There's plenty of pride (Prudie), prejudice (Jocelyn), sense (Sylvia), and sensibility (Sylvia's daughter Allegra). Throw in a fair amount of persuasion. Relationships and alliances unfolds over the months

MPAA rating: PG-13; for mature thematic material, sexual content, brief strong language, and some drug use

DVD, region 1, anamorphic widescreen (1.78:1) presentation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround

English or dubbed French dialogue with optional English, French or Spanish subtitles; closed-captioned
