Explores Austen's adage that general incivility is at love's essence. Sylvia's (Amy Brenneman) husband dumps her for another woman, so Bernadette (Kathy Baker) and Jocelyn (Maria Bello) organize a book club to distract her. They recruit Sylvia's daughter Allegra; Prudie (Emily Blunt), a young teacher whose marriage may be on the rocks; and Grigg (Hugh Dancy), a sci-fi fan who joins out of attraction to Jocelyn. The six read and discuss one Austen novel per month. Jocelyn tries to interest Grigg in Sylvia; Allegra falls in love with a woman she meets skydiving; Prudie contemplates an affair with a student; Sylvia's ex keeps popping up. In the discussions, characters reveal themselves in their comments. By the end, are truths universally acknowledged?
