Movie Reviews

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.
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.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 9/10 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.
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.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 9/10 by William Arnold The movie is eminently watchable: The production values are blue-chip, the script is often funny and cute, Hathaway is reasonably charming.
Empire Magazine - 8/10 by Liz Beardsworth A charming, intriguing biopic, given extra depth and sparkle by attractive performances from its superior cast.
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.
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%.
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.
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.
Reel.com - 8/10 by Pam Grady Hathaway and McAvoy are appealing, but bland. The scenes that hark back to Pride and Prejudice are not so much evocative as hackneyed. It is all very pleasant, but it is also a bit of a bore.
