Anne Hathaway gives a radiant performance as a young, love-struck Jane Austen in the witty and engaging romantic comedy BECOMING JANE. It's the untold romance that inspired the novels of one of the world's most celebrated authors. When the dashing Tom Lefroy, a reckless and penniless lawyer-to-be, enters Jane's life, he offends the emerging writer's sense and sensibility. Soon their clashing egos set off sparks that ignite a passionate romance and fuel Jane's dream of doing the unthinkable - marrying for love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Hathaway never makes us think the woman could write anything more complex than a diet book.
Fresh: Clearly embraces the spirit of the beloved novelist.
Rotten: The movie goes down easy, but there's a thin line here: is this an homage or a parasite?
Rotten: Becoming Jane becomes a rather ordinary, though sporadically entertaining, game of dress-up.
Such an amazing movie, will leave you thinking about it days after you watch it! Very realistic, not your everyday fairy tale ...
As a fan of Hathaway and Austen, it was the perfect mix of actress and role. Add McAvoy, and you've got magic. If you want a little bit of everything: drama, comedy and romance… this is for you. <3
I love Jane Austen, and I had high hopes for this movie, but I stopped watching half an hour into the film. It was terrible!
