Becoming Jane - still watching

Lately, this is a movie I have wanted to live in - Becoming Jane. Saw it twice in the theatres, and after having bought the dvd - who knows how many times.

The tone of the film is lively, but quiet, sparkly but with depth of emotion, witty and sincere.

Always the romantic - though the admirable James McAvoy plays a grand part in my frequent Becoming Jane-watchings. (He's not bad in Atonement either. You should take care and read the book, read Ian McEwan, he is a magician with words, shares his superb observations and insights in a clear, many-layered prose.)
