"The Jane Austen Book Club" opens today in Little Rock.  "Slick as a seal and light as a robin’s skull, The Jane Austen Book Club is a precision-crafted, designer-tasteful technology for delivering comfort. Breezy and pretty, it flatters all who would bathe in its dancing light," glows Philip Martin of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times writes, "It is crucial, I think, that writer-director [Robin] Swicord (author of the screenplays for "Little Women," "Memoirs of a Geisha" and "The Perez Family") has created characters who really do seem to have read the books and talk like they have. And she has created a book club that, like all book clubs, is really about its members. Chick Flick indeed! Guys, take your best buddy to see this movie. Tell him, "It's really cool, dude, even though there aren't any eviscerations.""

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
