Anne Hathaway, James McAvoy, James Cromwell, Maggie Smith and Julie Walters star in a romantic tale based on the life of Jane Austen.
Becoming Jane is the love story that Jane Austen herself had in her real life. Jane Austen lives with her pastor father Mr.Austen, mother Mrs.Austen, sister Cassandra, brother Henry, and brother George (the deaf one). The Austen family lives a moderately comfortable middle-class life, but funds are in short supply, Mrs.Austen wants Jane to take seriously the need to marry very soon so that she will have someone to take care of her. The most outstanding candidate is Mr.Wisley, The wealthy but seriously dull who is due to inherit the estate of the imperious Lady Gresham. But the problem is that Jane simply finds him to be awkward bore and can't conceive of loving him, even with time.
In the other side, Tom Lefroy has been sent to Somerset by his wealthy uncle, to learn some humility by staying with some indigent relatives. Tom has known for being an undisciplined young man who loves to break the conventions of the society. Paying a call on the Austens, he dozes off while Jane is reading a piece of writing about her sister Cassandra. Jane is frustrated, and when he tells her he finds her writing only accomplished because she is inexperienced in the ways of the world. He suggests Jane to read “The History of Tom Jones” to widen her horizons. She does and offers a lively critique of it, this totally enchanting Tom. And something stirs in Jane as well, and she wonders if it could be love. Even though, the two of them really rub each other the wrong way at first. Regardless, Jane Austen falls more and more in love, to the point where she begins to consider perhaps the greatest move a woman of her time could make – marrying only for love.
