Seems like I wasn't the only one who watched "Becoming Jane" this weekend.
Jessica and Karen also had the same idea as me.
I truly enjoy all things Austen and so was intrigued when this movie was released. I did read a lot of reviews just so I knew that it was a historical drama (aka: not entirely accurate) and a little of what to expect as far as "too far."
There were scenes that I didn't think would be included (implied premarital encounter and the debauchery of English "gentlemen"), but the ending is what really made this movie for me. I would recommend it, if only for the ending. To see a character do what was right...not easy or the happy ending, but morally right, was very rewarding.
