I'm writing on the film, Becoming Jane, and I find myself wanting other opinions. Loosely based on Jane Austen's biography, this film was savagely attacked by the critics, mainly because it took such liberties with the real facts of her life. But to be honest, I don't really care whether films are faithful or not, but rather, what they seek to say, both explicitly and silently. If anyone has seen it, I'm wondering what your opinion is? Did you love it, or hate it, and why? Or, if you haven't seen it, what is your immediate response to the images from the film?
