Reviews

Variety - Derek Elley
An ersatz "Pride and Prejudice" in all but name, Becoming Jane is a finely tooled Brit-lit costumer that, like Anne Hathaway's flawless accent as the young Austen, lacks only that final convincing 5%.
75
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Becoming Jane has a burnished feminine sadness, and the director, Julian Jarrold, gives it a creamy-dark visual flow.
67
Christian Science Monitor - Peter Rainer
It's movie-making as match-making.
67
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - William Arnold
It's an enjoyable period romance. Yet, ultimately, the unique magic of Austen so beautifully caught in 1996's "Emma" is missing.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
There are enough similarities between the movie and "Pride and Prejudice" that one could be forgiven thinking this screenplay is Austen lite.
