Romantic comedy. The story revolves around five women and one man who get together once a month to discuss the novels of the beloved English writer.

Sylvia's lesbian daughter, Allegra (Maggie Grace), joins to support her mother, as does Sylvia's friend, Jocelyn (Maria Bello), who brings along a young man she just met (Hugh Dancy) in the hope of playing matchmaker.The group is completed by Prudie Drummond (Emily Blunt), a young teacher. Finding comfort, wit and wisdom from the pages and each other, they begin to realise that their own love lives parallel Austen's seemingly timeless storylines.
