Movie Reviews

L.A. Weekly - 9/10 by Ella Taylor For realism's sake, Jarrold checks in with the usual muddy hems, misty green fields and chickens clucking underfoot. And if youâ(TM)re an Austen reader you can have an okay time just playing I-Spy Pride and Prejudice...
EmanuelLevy.Com - 9/10 by Emanuel Levy The style of Masterpiece Thetaer is applied to this reimagining of the making of writer Jane Austen, which will upset purists due to its liberties with Austen's real background.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - 9/10 by Philip Martin ... it seems uncharitable to deny poor Jane Austen this chaste, hypothetical affair
USA Today - 9/10 by Claudia Puig Clearly embraces the spirit of the beloved novelist.
ColeSmithey.com - 9/10 by Cole Smithey . McAvoy shines in the role of a good-hearted rogue, and director Julian Jarrold ("Kinky Boots") depicts 18th-century England with a convincing less-is-more approach.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert Roten A dull exercise in deconstructing Jane Austen's life to provide a life experience basis for her novels.
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.
Washington Post - 8/10 by Stephen Hunter If Becoming Jane is a little light in the head, it gives Anne Hathaway a chance to show herself off more delightfully than she did in The Devil Wears Prada.
Arizona Republic - 8/10 by Annemarie Moody ...a beautifully directed film from Julian Jarrold that draws as much strength from the depiction of the 18th-century English countryside (Ireland, actually) as from the performances of Anne Hathaway as Austen and James McAvoy as Tom Lefroy.
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.
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.
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%.
