Becoming Jane

Having seen previews for the new movie, Becoming Jane, I was interested in finding out how true to the real life of Jane Austen this film is. A few clicks of my mouse and I was at Carolyn McCulley’s blog, reading her not-overwhelmingly-positive review of the movie (her review is, in fact, titled Not Very Becoming to Jane). Her blog noted that Lori Smith, author of A Walk With Jane Austen (to be released October 2007), had also been at the screening and reviewed the movie. Lori’s review was just quite similar to Carolyn’s, and includes many fact vs. fiction notes.

If you’re an Austen fan and have been anticipating the release of this movie, I urge you to read these reviews first. Maybe you’ll wait till the film is released on DVD.
