Becoming Jane

Becoming Janeis a 2007 historical film directed by Julian Jarrold . It is inspired by the early life of author Jane Austen (portrayed by Anne Hathaway ), and her posited relationship with Thomas Langlois Lefroy (played by BAFTA -winning Scottish actor James McAvoy ). Also appearing are Julie Walters , James Cromwell and Maggie Smith . The film was produced in cooperation with several companies, including BBC Films and the Irish Film Board. It performed well at the box office, earning $37 million worldwide according to Box Office Mojo .

The casting was by Gail Stevens and Gillian Reynolds, costumes by Eimer Ni Mhaoldomhnaigh, and the original soundtrack was composed by Adrian Johnston . Although the film assumes an otherwise unproven relationship between Austen and Lefroy, the original screenplay was inspired by real events, which were chronicled in the bookBecoming Jane Austenby Jon Spence, who was the historical consultant on the film. In fact, prior to Spence’s book, biographers Radovici (1995)and Tomalin (2000)have also acknowledged a relationship between Jane Austen and Tom Lefroy. Tomalin’s book was referenced in the making ofBecoming Jane.

Jane Austen ( Anne Hathaway ) is the younger daughter of Reverend George Austen and his wife ( Julie Walters ) and has yet to find a suitable husband. She wishes to be a writer, to the dismay of her mother and proud delight of her father ( James Cromwell ).

Thomas Lefroy ( James McAvoy ) is a promising lawyer with a bad reputation, which he describes as "typical" for peers of that era. After a bad first impression upon meeting him, Jane cannot stand the arrogant Irishman. She turns down the affections of numerous men, including Mr. Wisley ( Laurence Fox ), the nephew of the wealthy Lady Gresham ( Maggie Smith ). Wisley proposes, but Jane ultimately rejects him due to lack of affection. The mischievous Tom — later the inspiration for Pride and Prejudice 's Mr. Darcy — continues his advances and Jane begins to take the idea of marriage seriously. The two get to know each other gradually, however, and eventually they fall in love.

Tom, Jane, Henry (Jane's brother, played by Joe Anderson ) and Jane's rich widowed cousin, Eliza Comtesse de Feullide, conspire to receive an invitation from Tom's uncle and benefactor (the Lord Chief Judge Langlois of London) for the rich "Madame La Comtesse" and her friends. This visit is meant to be a short break in their journey to see Jane's brother, Edward. This would allow Judge Langlois to get to know Jane before and give a blessing for their marriage. Full of hope, Jane cannot sleep during the night at the Judge's place. In a flow of inspiration, she then begins the writing of what is to becomePride and Prejudice.

However, Judge Langlois receives a letter informing him of the genteel poverty of Jane's family, and he refuses to give Tom his blessing, declaring that he would rather wish Tom to be the whoremonger he had been than allow him to live in poverty because of a bad marriage. Tom tells Jane that he cannot marry her, and she's crushed, not knowing that Tom had a legitimate reason; he is his family's only hope of survival. Jane goes back home and accepts the marriage proposal of Mr. Wisley, which she had earlier turned down. Later, Tom Lefroy realizes he cannot live without Jane, and comes back and says that they should run away. Jane agrees, and they leave, with only Jane's sister Cassandra knowing. On the way, Jane stumbles upon a letter from Tom's mother, and realizes his situation. She tells Tom that they can't do this, not with so many people depending upon him. He insists that he and Jane must marry; as he puts it, "I will never give you up". He says he'll make money but Jane, knowing that's impossible, tells him that it won't be enough and he'll never be able to get money with a High Court judge (his uncle) as an enemy and with a penniless wife. He then becomes very distraught and asks her if she loves him, and she replies, “Yes, but if our love destroys your family, then it will destroy itself in a long, slow degradation of guilt and regret and blame". Soon after, she gets up and leaves to go home. The last glimpse Jane gets of him is through the carriage window with him walking after it for a bit, then stopping.

Twenty years later Jane sees Tom leaving after a gathering. Her brother catches him and brings him to her. After a moment Tom introduces his eldest daughter who is also a huge fan of Jane's book. As she starts to ask Jane to read aloud he quickly calls her by her name, Jane. Astonished that he named his eldest after her, Jane agrees and reads aloud. The last scene shows Tom's daughter sitting by Jane as she readsPride and Prejudice, while Tom is to the side staring at Jane as he used to, showing he still loves her.
