Synopsis

BECOMING JANE, a romantic drama starring Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada), presents a fresh and daring view of Jane Austen’s early years. Set in the late 18th century, the film portrays Austen’s encounters with the modern, roguish young Irishman, Tom Lefroy (James McAvoy, The Last King of Scotland) and imagines how their romantic encounter could have influenced some of her most famous novels that followed.

In this fascinating period in Austen’s life, the film also shows the 20 year old’s determination to succeed in an era when independent thought was not part of the everyday etiquette and women’s choices were severely limited. A moving and inspirational story, BECOMING JANE stays true to the spirit of Jane Austen, one of the most influential female novelists of all time.
