A delightful, albeit unbelievable, imagining of the youthful affair between Jane Austen and Tom Lefroy, a young Irish barrister-to-be. The film had luscious settings with cinematography reminiscent of similar literary tales. The acting was also excellent, especially Julie Walters and James Cromwell as Jane's parents, however small their role. I enjoyed the youthful passion displayed by James McAvoy as Tom (similar to his outing in Starter for Ten which I also enjoyed). All in all a pleasant way to spend two hours, then return home and pick up a good book, perhaps something by Jane Austen.
