Becoming Jane is a costume drama about the Jane Austen’s life. If you’ve seen the recent (and better) Pride & Prejudice, you know the story. There’s nothing extraordinary about this film, it’s pretty, predictable, somewhat dull and a bit romantic. The acting is fine, the filming beautiful. There’s just nothing to set this film apart from the masses of costume dramas we’ve seen before.
 
If you like costume dramas there are worse ways to spend a couple of hours. If you detest them, this one won’t covert you.
