Becoming Jane

Becoming Jane......You have probably all seen this already, but our library just got it so I borrowed it for the weekend. Photobucket It was absolutely HANDS DOWN - one of my favorite movies EVER!!! Of course, background here, I am a BIG Jane Austen fan - Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, the list goes on and on, but I thought the movie was WONDERFUL!!!! Anne Hathaway was PERFECT as Jane and James McAvoy, well, you just need to see it for yourself!!! And, even Joe was engaged the entire movie - see, I told you it was good. We laughed - the humor was very fun and yes, cried too - I was a bawling baby at the end - and that is very NOT like me!!! SO good - if you haven't seen it, you must!!!

I enjoyed it last summer when I saw it in the theater, but didn't know that it was out on DVD already. I must go to Target to pick a copy up!

I went to see it in the theater with my mom and sister. It was wonderful. I was bawling at the end too.

I just watched "The Jane Austen Book club" (a movie) and really liked it. So I bought Pride and Prejudice. I've never read anything by her.

I know, I know. You may disown me from your family now if you want to Becky. (I'm trying to make up for it though...better late than never!)

I will have to rent it on a night when Jay isn't home...I can tell you that he would NOT be engaged the whole time!
But, it sounds great to me.

Thanks for the review!! I cannot wait to see it. I am a huge Jane Austen fan and I am going to go out and get it! I could use a good movie (and a good cry!)

Huge Austen fan here (and raising some young fans as well). The "big" girls love P&P, and their brother just goes off in a huff rolling his eyes when they put it in the player.

I have this movie in my Netflix queue...I need to send back LionKing so I can get one for MEEEE by this weekend. :o) Thanks for the heads up!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
