Becoming Jane

Cover Image

Becoming Jane was released in 2007 and stars Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen (yes the Jane Austen of Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, etc.) and James McAvoy as Thomas Lefroy.  It is inspired by the real relationship between Jane and Thomas.  They meet, sparks fly, numerous marriage proposals are offered by more than one man, and obstacles to true love abound.  It was a fun movie, especially for those who like Jane Austen or 20th century English tales.

Hathaway and McAvoy were great.  James Cromwell and Maggie Smith also make appearances.  If you want to punish your husband for not taking out the trash or some other such thing, make him watch too.  Otherwise, open up a bottle of wine, invite your book club over and have a girls night.

    I didn’t realize that was out on DVD now. I bet Anne Hathaway is great in that role. I’ll have to rent it the next time my husband is out of town.
