Movie Preview: Becoming Jane

In Becoming Jane, Anne Hathaway plays the great Jane Austen during a time in her life that may have influenced the romances in Austen's novels. It's speculated that Austen had some kind of romantic relationship with Irish lawyer Tom Lefroy (played by the adorable James McAvoy in the movie), though ultimately Lefroy married someone else and Austen remained single for the rest of her life. Becoming Jane brings together fact and fiction to imagine what this romance may have been like, while also making allusions to Austen's work. I'm anxious to find out how Hathaway does playing someone so famous and so beloved, so I'll surely be seeing this when it opens next Friday August 3. To watch the trailer,

it came out here in australia about 7 months ago and let me give you the long and the short of it, go in with low expectations and you will be rewarded. go in with high expectations and you'll be disappointed....greatly.

James was also Mr. Tumnus in the Narnia movie. The movie looks cute, but I hope the asides to show where her novels came from aren't too cheesy. To be honest, it looks like a trailer for Pride & Prejudice. LoL

Hahahaha gloss that narrator does not below in this particular movie even if it's only for a preview. made the movie sound like a cheesy chick flick/comedy, which I don't think the film is cheesy at all.

mandykw — If you haven't seen The Last King of Scotland yet, definitely do so! McAvoy costars with Forest Whitaker and he does an absolutely fantastic job. I hope he gets more and more parts; he's so easy to watch! :)

Anne Hathaway is such a beautiful actress, she has quite a career ahead of her. I love the Jane Austen stories and Anne will do her justice. James McAvoy is no slouch either.
