When a young woman such as yourself receives the addresses of a gentleman, it is her duty to accept at once.
Inspired by an incident in the life of writer Jane Austen, we meet the feisty 20-year-old pre-fame, determined to marry for love, despite her parents plans. When Jane (Anne Hathaway) is introduced to the roguish, arrogant Tom Lefroy (James McAvoy), she can’t stand him, but she soon finds herself attracted to this inappropriately poor, but intelligent man. She finds herself at odds with society and convention, like so many characters in her work.
The director of Becoming Janes talks about the making of his costume drama in Ireland.
