This has become one of my all time favorite movies. Anne Hathaway is flawless and James McAvoy now takes his place as one of the best British actors I have ever seen.

If one were to fuse the literary sensibility of Jane Austen with the fanciful imaginative license of "Shakespeare in Love," what would emerge would likely be the charming tale Becoming Jane. Full Review
Derek Elley
An ersatz "Pride and Prejudice" in all but name, Becoming Jane is a finely tooled Brit-lit costumer that, like Anne Hathaway's flawless accent as the young Austen, lacks only that final convincing 5%. Full Review
James Berardinelli
