I don't know how many Jane Austen fans there are among you Maniacs, but I am a big-time Jane Austen fan, and there is this new movie out that is a sort-of biography, because some of it is fictionalized. There isn't that much information about her love life. So I was prepared to totally hate the new movie. I also was totally prepared to hate Anne Hathaway in the role. (The Princess Diaries - oh puhleeze!).
But I thought the movie was awesome. I highly recommend it. It was much better than the reviews said it would be. It was a serious, not a campy look at Jane Austen's life and it made me appreciate her even more!
Like it said at the end of the movie - this is a woman who has written six of the best novels in the English language.
