Becoming Jane

It is the story of young Jane Austen, one of the World's most famous female novelists. Set in a time when accepting a proposal of marriage was tantamount to a young woman's very survival, Becoming Jane depicts Austen's struggle between her dreams of living by her pen and marrying for love versus social position, money and necessity.

Becoming Jane is a beautifully crafted film; smart without being dry, it transports you to the 18th century by the eyes and the ears with a wonderful score and convincing performances by Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy.
