Movie Reviews

Times-Picayune - 9/10 by Mike Scott With a spot-on accent and altogether charming performance, Hathaway makes another convincing statement that she has grown, as a woman and as an actress.
USA Today - 9/10 by Claudia Puig 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.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Ty Burr Anne Hathaway's Jane is headstrong and clever, balanced and true.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert The way all of this plays out is acted warmly by the principals, and Eigil Bryld's photography (of Ireland) makes England look breathtakingly green and inviting. The director, Julian Jarrold ("Kinky Boots" and the TV version of "White Teeth") is comfortable with the material, and it is comfortable with him.
Premiere - 8/10 by Deborah Day Hathaway's proven charms work magic here.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Owen Gleiberman Becoming Jane has a burnished feminine sadness, and the director, Julian Jarrold, gives it a creamy-dark visual flow.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Dennis Schwartz The sole pleasure I got was in gazing at the fancy costumes and taking in the lush grounds of the snobby Lady Gresham's estate.
New York Post - 8/10 by Kyle Smith Instead of trying to make Austen's life entertaining by pretending it was just like her work - as in the dull recent French movie "Molière" - Becoming Jane has a more astute appreciation of how Austen, or any fiction writer, works. There's a bit of stealing from life, lots of exaggeration, some wish fulfillment, mix-and-match character assembly.
Fresno Bee - 8/10 by Donald Munro There's something refreshingly spare and rough-hewn about this big-screen experience.
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%.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 7/10 by William Arnold It's an enjoyable period romance. Yet, ultimately, the unique magic of Austen so beautifully caught in 1996's "Emma" is missing.
Film Threat - 7/10 by Stina Chyn Hathaway's exuberance and dramatic range are fitting for this portrayal of the celebrated literary figure.
