Not For Everyone

Based on the possible romance between Jane Austen and Thomas Lefroy, it is the story of two young people who have preconceived ideas of each other and their difficult positions in society. It was an interesting movie, and I appreciated the fact that it was a very intelligent movie. Some of the language and phrasing was unfamiliar to me...unlike the recent versions of her books made into movies w... read more

I watched this hot on the heels of watching the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice. I have to say, it rather paled in comparison to that, and to Shakespeare in Love, from which it stole the story's basic premise. It is a premise I wouldn't mind seeing more, so long as it was done well. And this one is fairly well done. Just not quite as good as Shakespeare.

{To begin with, a few comments which are, petty, and, in a sense.... inappropriate. That is: that the summary blurb informs me that Miss Austen is a "late 17th century" author.

Famed romantic novelist Jane Austen has a personal life as dramatic as any of her fictional characters in this historical drama. Jane (Anne Hathaway) rejects the advice of her parents, who want to see her married to the nephew of a wealthy noble, and instead falls for dashing but poor Irish lawyer Tom Lefroy (James McAvoy). As sparks fly, both families intercede to head off the romance, but headstrong Jane will not be told what to do.

" 7.4 - I am obsessed with James McAvoy and the character fits him very well. The customes are pretty good but the best thing is the music and the dialogues. The plot is based on Jane Austen life so it was very interesting too."
