~Charity's Place review
This is really quite a lovely film.
I agree with you, Livi!Most the people I've talked with about "Miss Austen Regrets" don't much care for it. :-)
I'm really interested to watch this, though I remember Being Jane disappointed me a lot. I'm just glad they FINALLY decided to show this in Australia!
Oh~ can't wait! :) I saw the previews for this several months ago!!!!Love & Hugs~ Jen
Have you seen it Elise? If you have (or when you have) what is your opinion? A friend of ours owns it, but I haven't been able to decide if it is worth watching or not ... :)To the KING be all the glory!RebekahBLOG: http://www.donotgrowweary.com/blog"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15
If you're going to watch it I would love a review on it. I just watched it this week and did not like it. Jane Austen is portrayed as flirtatious, silly, and gives unwise counsel.
No, I haven't seen it, and I don't expect to like it that much. Oh well, if I keep my expectations really low, I'll be less likely to be disappointed, right? :PI'll try to do a review sometime, if I watch it.
I awarded you Elise, but knowing you, you've probably already been given this award :)
Oh wow! Thankyou, Jo! No, I haven't been given this award before. :-)
Elise, If you ever have the time and/or chance to see either “Becoming Jane” or “Miss Austen Regrets”, it would be interesting to read what you thought of them. A lot of people that I’ve shared discussions with on both films don’t much care for either one, but I rather enjoyed each for different reasons. The latter gives an account of Jane’s later years in life and subsequently her death, while the former is about her younger years and paints a rather tragic romance. True, “Becoming Jane” is sad, but I like it all the more for its’ leading stars, both of whom are two of my favorite actors (both give stellar performances too!). Everything I’ve read though does support Jane falling in love with Tom, while others argue that point. Anyway, it was interesting to see both since they essentially “follow” one another. Granted it was unintentional. :-)
Anonymous - thanks for sharing your thoughts! I'll try to watch them both sometime. . . maybe over the Christmas holidays. It's pretty lax of me, really - an ardent Janeite who hasn't seen either of those two biopics. . . :P
A friend and I were discussing this film, don't watch it!!! A big lie about Jane Austen's life and romance.I have not personally seen it but have heard bad things on it.
"I'll try to watch them both sometime. . . maybe over the Christmas holidays."Elise, I’m sorry if giving the impression that you “had” to watch either “Becoming Jane” or “Miss Austen Regrets”. I only meant that if you ever choose to, it would be interesting to read what you thought of them, since so many people didn’t like how Jane’s life was depicted. The first wasn’t well recommended because of Jane’s “reckless” choice in falling for Tom and the latter because her character wasn’t exactly moral. I suppose I’ve just been able to enjoy them as individual costume dramas. :-)
