Critic Reviews of "Becoming Jane"Premiere MagazineNovember 03, 2016
"The reality of love's disappointments enriches the film's heroine, who never married in real life, and brings a 200-year-old figure into living focus."Ebert & RoeperAugust 14, 2007
Not only is that a huge stretch of the facts, it makes for a dull and overly familiar melodrama.TIME MagazineAugust 10, 2007
Hathaway never makes us think the woman could write anything more complex than a diet book.Chicago ReaderAugust 10, 2007
This never rises above a date movie, but it's functionally literate (the lovers have some pleasant banter about the realistic merits of Tom Jones) and features a fine supporting turn from Ian Richardson.Associated PressAugust 10, 2007
Becoming Jane becomes a rather ordinary, though sporadically entertaining, game of dress-up.Wall Street JournalAugust 09, 2007
Austen comes off here more as stenographer than writer.Times-PicayuneAugust 14, 2009
With a spot-on accent and altogether charming performance, Hathaway makes another convincing statement that she has grown, as a woman and as an actress.ReelzChannel.comAugust 22, 2008
Director Julian Jarrold (Kinky Boots) struck a unique and lovely tone, managing to maintain a conventional Merchant-Ivory type look but successfully infusing it with some rather modern humor--Hathaway and McAvoy verbally sparring like an 18th century Trac7M PicturesAugust 18, 2008
without a pretext and knowledge of the classic author, much of the richness of this movie got lostMovie ViewsFebruary 19, 2008
Even though it looked great and was moderately engaging, something was also always missing.Movie MetropolisFebruary 11, 2008
...there's a feeling with Becoming Jane that we have seen it all before.... Many times.Laramie Movie ScopeJanuary 12, 2008
A dull exercise in deconstructing Jane Austen's life to provide a life experience basis for her novels.
