Jane, Jane, Jane

Two weekends ago I watched two movies I'd been saving on our DVR: Becoming Jane and the Jane Austen Book club. It was was a total Jane Austen weekend!
I really, really liked Becoming Jane. If you've read any of her books, it really illuminates where she was coming from when writing her novels and intertwines Jane and Elizabeth Bennett pretty neatly. And I thought Anne Hathaway was brilliant.Jane Austen Book Club was okay. Its been a number of years since I read the book, so I'm not sure how closely the movie hews to the book. Jane Austen or not, it was just an easy, nothing chick flick. I did like how Emily Blunt's character dressed in the movie. So chic!
