Attention Jane Austen Fans!

Wyatt and I watched a great movie last night that no Austen fan should miss.... "Becoming Jane" starring Ann Hathway. Sooooooo GOOD! My only issue was that one of the main characters was James McAvoy, who played Mr. Tumnus in The Lion The With and The Wardrobe. After we recognized him, it was really difficult not to picture him as a fawn.

Maybe it's just me.

Anyway, check it out!

Where did you hear that, punkin'? Not saying you're wrong...I'm just surprised. This, from Wikipedia:

"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 book Becoming Jane Austen by 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 of Becoming Jane."

I'm just saying :)
