Becoming Jane

Directed by Julian Jarrold

Jane Austen lit up the world with her words, wit and wisdom. But her life, too, was stoked by passion and romance.

In BECOMING JANE Anne Hathaway is Jane Austen, a woman who believes in love but is destined, via her parents’ wishes, to marry for money.

But then Jane meets the dashing young Irishman, Tom Lefroy (James McAvoy). His intellect and arrogance ignite Jane’s curiosity and her world spins head over heels! In BECOMING JANE a young lady, on the first rung of literary greatness, risks a romance that was to shape her life and her work.
