Becoming Jane is a wonderful film that looks at the real life of the well-known writer of British literature history --Jane Austen through the prism of her novels. The film is just like a semi-fictional biography of the esteemed author. Unquestionably, the heroine Jane is my favorite character in this film. The story happened in 1796, when 20-year old Jane Austen met the roguish Tom Lefroy- a poor student of law who is dependent upon his rich uncle for his allowance. Then, they fall madly in love with each other though they are unsuited to one another. While Jane pursues a romance with Tom, she indulges her other passion: writing. She begins to write her famous novel--Pride and Prejudice. In this film, Jane is an elegant, well-educated and independent lady. Bravely and strong-minded as she is, she pursued her own love valorously and broke the tradition to aspire the marriage that with love. So she gave up the proposal that was offered by Mr. Wesley, a wealthy gentleman who loved Jane deeply too. On the other hand, she is also a considerate and selfless lady who always cares for others. When she was ready for eloped, she decided to give up this romance, in order to help Tom’s whole family. Because she knew that Tom’s family couldn’t live without Tom. How can we imagine her sadness! Furthermore, her persistence to love is also deeply admired by me. She kept her love for Tom Lefroy in her mind for all her life time… I’m deeply touched by this great, famous and selfless woman—Jane.
