Miss Austen Regrets Reviews
This is a deeper portrayal than the still charming "Becoming Jane" movie.
'Jane Austen: [reads to Cassandra from first draft of Persuasion] More than seven years were gone since this little history of sorrowful interest had reached its close; Jane Austen: She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older: the natural sequel of an unnatural beginning.She had used him ill, deserted and disappointed him; and worse, she had shewn a feebleness of character in doing so, which his own decided, confident temper could not endure. She had given him up to oblige others. Jane Austen: She hoped to be wise and reasonable in time; but alas! alas! she must confess to herself that she was not wise yet. Cassandra Austen: I don't know how you have say it without tears. Jane Austen: I don't cry at anything that pays me money.'
