BECOMING JANE

Perhaps the most famous and beloved female author of all time, young Jane Austen wanted to write of “affairs of the heart.” It is these sorts of affairs which inform her writing of perhaps her most adored book “Pride and Prejudice,” or so asserts this lighter-than-air romantic drama – a biography of the great British writer, from director Julian Jarrold (“Kinky Boots”). Anne Hathaway leads a wonderful cast in this sumptuous adaptation of a recent biography by Jon Spence, via a screenplay by Sarah Williams and Kevin Hood. The words are lyrical and lovely, the scenery lush and vibrant. A sweet, enjoyable time.
