Theatrical report

Well done to everyone involved for making Becoming Jane seem like one of Jane Austen's own novels (Pride and prejudice in fact).

On top of that, the locations, the costumes, the manners are all delightful. Anne Hathaway does a good young Jane but when she's made-up for the old Jane it doesn't quiet work. Not so for James McAvoy who is the dashing Tom Lefroy to a T; the perfect doomed romantic hero.

It's all good.

The biography, drama, romance movie Becoming Jane is directed by Julian Jarrold and stars Anne Hathaway, James McAvoy, Maggie Smith.
