Becoming Jane

2007

Miramax has never scored at the Oscars like it did with Shakespeare in Love (seven awards, including best picture, actress, and screenplay), and this drama closely follows the golden formula, fictionalizing the life of Jane Austen so as to mimic her literature. Reborn as a stunning Anne Hathaway, Austen must choose between true love with a sexy young lawyer (James McAvoy of The Last King of Scotland) and a marriage proposal from a wealthy bore (Laurence Fox). 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 (BBC's House of Cards) as McAvoy's lordly uncle. Julian Jarrold (Kinky Boots) directed; with Julie Walters, James Cromwell, and Maggie Smith.
