Film Preview: Becoming Jane (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: B

Review: Outside of the hint of period clothing, there’s not very much about this poster that warns audiences who don’t like the style that it’s a period romance. The makers are hoping that Anne Hathaway’s visage will help sell the film. Thankfully, the colors and layout rescue it from being another boring advertising tool.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: This looks like every other Jane Austen-inspired period romantic dramedy. While I don’t expect much from Hathaway by the looks of this preview, perhaps being surrounding by notable thesps Julie Walters, James Cromwell and Maggie Smith will help. She’ll also get aide from the charming and talented James McAvoy

Oscar Prospects:

I’m not sure how much Oscar attention an August release will get, but Costume Design and Art Direction nods are quite likely and we could see a Keira Knightly-style nod for Hathaway. Smith and McAvoy could be pulled along by a strong reception for the film.

Release Date:

August 3, 2007
