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.

Heather Huntington

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 Trac

without a pretext and knowledge of the classic author, much of the richness of this movie got lost

Even though it looked great and was moderately engaging, something was also always missing.

...there's a feeling with Becoming Jane that we have seen it all before.... Many times.

A dull exercise in deconstructing Jane Austen's life to provide a life experience basis for her novels.

You'll enjoy it if you're the artistic, romantic type who can be seated for 120 minutes without CGI or anything getting blown up.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Jane Austen did not live the life of Elizabeth Bennett, but even if she had, there was no reason to be this bland in presenting it.

An enjoyable appetizer, albeit for a meal that one could argue already has far too many courses.

Monsters and Critics

The squeaky clean love story of Jane Austen fails to make hay of either women's liberation or the miracle of creative writing, sticking to lush estates and courtly costume finery instead

Fails to capture either the sprightly spirit and poignant pathos of its subject's famous works.

Becoming Jane takes a stab at being a historical romance in the vein of Shakespeare in Love, but something key is missing.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

A smart film about manners, money and marriage, "Becoming Jane" offers a fictional glimpse at the all-too-brief life of author Jane Austen.

The sole pleasure I got was in gazing at the fancy costumes and taking in the lush grounds of the snobby Lady Gresham's estate.
