Becoming Jane, also starring the acclaimed Maggie Smith, James Cromwell and Julie Walters, is an enchanting and imaginative film you ll fall head over heels for

Unfortunately, I came away a little disappointed. I found the chemistry between the two protagonists to be lacking and at moments of emotional intensity I lost my ability to believe in Anne Hathaway's "Englishness", there are subtleties in body language, tone and manner that all miss the mark. The final blow was the part at the end that added in some good scandal but that was totally fictitious. Some unnecessary Hollywood drama and a missed opportunity to study deeper and more subtle emotions elsewhere in the story.
None-the-less I did enjoy this movie, period frocks, english countryside and Jane kicking the butt of the boys at cricket! You go girl.
This particular novel was a sad story about lovers denied their happiness by the decisions of those holding the purse strings of bliss.
