Synopsis

Becoming Jane tells the story of the true love affair that inspired the young Jane Austen to become a writer. When the 20 year-old Austen meets the brilliant, roguish and attractive young Irishman Tom Lefroy, she falls madly in love. This little-known but true story was the turning point in Jane becoming the greatest romantic writer in English literature.
The film presents a fresh and surprising view of Jane's early years. Her romantic adventure with Tom inspired many of the male characters in her celebrated novels.
