Movie Reviews

Sydney Morning Herald - 9/10 by Sandra Hall It's all very spirited without getting anywhere near the spirit of Austen herself -- at least as we know her from her work.
USA Today - 9/10 by Claudia Puig Clearly embraces the spirit of the beloved novelist.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - 9/10 by Philip Martin ... it seems uncharitable to deny poor Jane Austen this chaste, hypothetical affair
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert The director, Julian Jarrold, is comfortable with the material, and it is comfortable with him.
Variety - 8/10 by 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%.
Premiere - 8/10 by Deborah Day Hathaway's proven charms work magic here.
Houston Chronicle - 8/10 by Bruce Westbrook The film seduces. Beautifully produced, from production design and costumes to music and performances, it's also faithful to the genteel spirit and repressed passions for which she's known.
Laramie Movie Scope - 8/10 by Robert Roten A dull exercise in deconstructing Jane Austen's life to provide a life experience basis for her novels.
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 8/10 by Linda Cook A smart film about manners, money and marriage, "Becoming Jane" offers a fictional glimpse at the all-too-brief life of author Jane Austen.
Christianity Today - 8/10 by Camerin Courtney One can only hope that Becoming Jane will inspire moviegoers to find out more about this beloved literary great. Or hopefully revisit one of her classic novels.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by Peter Rainer Becoming Jane has its felicities...McAvoy and Hathaway work well together despite being saddled with dialogue that is not remotely in Austen's league. But then again, what is?
New York Times - 8/10 by Stephen Holden A triumph for Anne Hathaway, who brings to the young Jane the same jittery wide-eyed intensity she displayed in The Devil Wears Prada along with a secure British accent. She and Mr. McAvoy inject a keen intelligence into the couple's verbal jousts.
