In The Jane Austen Book Club, Prudie Drummond (Emily Blunt) convinces her husband Dean (Marc Blucas) to read Persuasion. He not only loves the book, but the story brings the couple closer and helps to mend their troubled marriage.
Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is an expert shopper in Clueless, loosely based on Emma, and one would never confuse her for a book worm. Her Mr. Knightley, Josh (played by Paul Rudd) is a serious law student in college. The snappy dialog makes watching the film a treat. CHER: Hey, granola breath, you got something on your chin. JOSH: I'm growing a goatee. CHER: Oh, that's good. You don't want to be the last one at the coffee house without chin pubes.
