Becoming Jane . . . or at least a Hollywoodized version of her.

The trailer for Becoming Jane is up. It looks wildly inaccurate (based on what little I have read of Jane Austen’s letters) and I found the Little Women music distracting (that’s what that is, right? I think so), but there’s no point in me saying that I won’t go see it. We all know that I will. It is, after all, a movie based on Jane Austen herself, no matter how loosely. And I’ll probably enjoy it for what it is, much as I did for the recent Pride and Prejudice. It has Maggie Smith! And Julie Walters! I’m shameless, I know.

It’s supposed to come out August 3 . . . though it may take longer to get to my area. Anybody in?
