Young Jane Austen (Hathaway) spends her time scribbling stories and reading the results to her family. It’s a secure if dull existence, and when the rakish Tom (James McAvoy) arrives in the village, sparks soon fly. But Tom has secrets which threaten their future.
A charming, intriguing biopic, given extra depth and sparkle by attractive performances from its superior cast.
