A librarian finds true love in new Hallmark movie

A librarian finds true love when she wakes up inside her favorite Jane Austen novel in the new Hallmark movie An American in Austen. The film, which will premiere this weekend on Hallmark Channel, stars Eliza Bennett, Nicholas Bishop, and Nell Barlow.

New Hallmark movie

In An American in Austen, Eliza Bennett stars as Harriet, a librarian who believes no one can ever live up to the character of Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

When her boyfriend proposes to her, she is so overwhelmed that she flees. She falls asleep on the car ride home and wakes up in the novel Pride and Prejudice. She befriends her literary hero Elizabeth Bennett (played by Nell Barlow) and the rest of the Bennett family and wows them with her uncanny knack for predicting what will happen next. Soon, her peculiar behavior beguiles none other than Mr. Darcy (Nicholas Bishop) himself.

As Harriet’s presence disrupts the story she loves most, she starts to question the fantasies she once held of Regency-Era life. Harriet must choose between this unexpected chance at love with the man she’s always dreamed of or her imperfect life back in the real world.

Jane Austen February

Hallmark announced late last year that all five new movies premiering during the month of February would have a Jane Austen theme.

“Jane Austen’s stories are timeless and continue to resonate with readers and viewers of all ages,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president of programming at Hallmark Media. “Our movies will bring her beloved characters to life in fresh, new ways and honor the many women who continue to be inspired by them.”

About the cast

Eliza Bennett played Amanda Carrington in Dynasty. She has also appeared on the shows Broadchurch, This Is Us, Sweet/Vicious, and The Conners.

Nicholas Bishop starred in the HBO series Industry. He has had roles in the movies Lady Chatterley’s Lover and The Critic. Bishop starred alongside Alexa PenaVega in the 2023 Hallmark movie A Paris Proposal.
