That’s the literal translation of the title of the English film Becoming Jane starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy, although you may also come across the title “Jane Austen”. In fact, it’s the story of the famous British author that the filmmakers have tried to recreate. And if you’ve read Pride and Prejudice or seen the film, you’ll find a lot of points of overlap. The film also tells the story of Austen’s rise as a writer and her first and only love, Thomas Lefroy. Because the young people’s marriage would have been impractical, as both families were relatively poor and hoped to take advantage of their offspring’s marriages to improve their financial and social standing, Jane and Tom were never destined to be together. But the writer flatly refused to marry at the age of thirty, and so Jane.
