Now, I'm one step closer to completing the Everything Austen challenge. Yay for me! :)
Basically, the movie focused on Jane Austen's life before she wrote her novels (or maybe in the process of writing them). More importantly, the movie centered on Jane Austen's supposed relationship with Tom Lefroy. Keep in mind though that this is a bit fictional. While Jane Austen and Tom Lefroy did know each other and maybe even had a bit of a well, 'something special', I think the movie, maybe, exaggerated it a bit.
As a Jane Austen lover, I really enjoyed the film. I could totally picture Anne Hathaway as Jane and James McAvoy was just superb! I mean, what is up with that guy?! It's like you can give him any role and he. can. deliver. (Now, I'm fangirling. LOL.)
A bit of a spoiler here, so you may stop now. :)
It just seems so sad that Jane Austen, who continues to delight us with such romantic stories and wonderful heros like Mr. Darcy and Captain Wentworth, didn't get to be with her one true love. A bit sad, don't you think?
