The year is 1795 and young Jane Austen is a feisty 20-year-old and emerging writer who already sees a world beyond class and commerce, beyond pride and prejudice, and dreams of doing what was then nearly unthinkable - marrying for love. Naturally, her parents are searching for a wealthy, well-appointed husband to assure their daughter's future social standing. They are eyeing Mr. Wisley, nephew to the very formidable, not to mention very rich, local aristocrat Lady Gresham, as a prospective match. But when Jane meets the roguish and decidedly non-aristocratic Tom Lefroy, sparks soon fly along with the sharp repartee. His intellect and arrogance raise her ire - then knock her head over heels. Now, the couple, whose flirtation flies in the face of the sense and sensibility of the age, is faced with a terrible dilemma. If they attempt to marry, they will risk everything that matters - family, friends and fortune.

I think this movie was amazing it is very hard to make me cry because of a movie but this one accomplished it. Some people may say that this movie is not good because it does not have a happy ending but life doesn't have a happy ending or at least the ending you want. this movie had an ending that was considerate realistic and in my mind happy. I am a firm believer that it is better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all and this movie is a testament to that.


Although probably fictional, the movie reveals some tantalizing correspondences between Jane Austen's life and her most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice. Ann Hathaway is charming but not quite up to the part. Still, the movie is worth seeing if you are one of the many Pride and Prejudice junkies.


I am not much of a technical specialist regarding what makes a movie good or bad but a friend told me how to be a good judge of a movie. Simpley statement ;"Did you believe it". I believed everything I saw and heard in "Becoming Jane" The acting is subperb-Ann Hathaway is surely to get an Academy Award nomination for her portrail of Jane Austen as well as the other actors for supporting roles. You would think a love story set in 18th century England and Ireland would be slow and boring. Not so this movie; I felt myself gripping my seat to wait for what would happen next in this thrilling love story. It is nice to see a good, holesome family movie being made which attracts all types and ages of viewers. I highly recomment this move to all


The movie was inspiring. The plot actually started taking twists into directions that I could not even guess what ould happn next. I loved it.


As a true Austen lover and a frequent traveler to England, I went into this this VERY skeptical as I just could not picture Anne Hathaway playing a period role such as this. I have to say she was exceptional and not once did I find myself noticing that she was "trying to act" English - I was that into the movie. I also was worried as I had heard it was based on truth - but that a lot had been assumed. It did not go to far with this and most of what was covered "could" have happened as we know so little of her life. The questions of how close she and Mr Lafoy actually were is still unanswered. The scenery is gorgeous, the costumes divine and the chemistry between James McAvoy and Anne Hathaway is incredible. I have never seen him before and my daughter and I both have serious crushes on him now! He is a very good actor. Great to see Ian Richardson one last time as well. BRAVO!
