Becoming Jane (2006)

Becoming Jane

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was an English novelist. she is one of the most influential and honored novelists in English literature. this film is loosely based on her life before she becomes a writer. she looks for inspiration by finding true love in her life. a touching n heart-breaking journey.

it is indeed true. the time she ends her affair with Lefroy is the blossom period of some of her greatest works of all time, including the famous "Pride and Prejudice". this is a beautiful film. i enjoyed older era films with English/British accent. the language itself is beautiful enough. so is the love story. though heartbreaking, but touches the heart indeed. the scene - after several years, the moment Lefroy appear with his eldest daughter, named Jane - overwhelms me .. same goes for the background - wide green grassland, ancient houses, large castles, horse carriages .. pretty much fairy tale like. the film is a huge recommendation if you enjoy literacy.
