It was good
certainly but I was a little disappointed because I was SO looking forward to it. I had the problem that I knew too much about JA's life so I knew what was going to happen to all the characters. Also I was saying this or that wouldn't have happened. Jane wouldn't have done that
To which my husband said - How do you know? I just know - o.k.
It was a toss up between seeing Becoming Jane
and The 300
and Jane won - but he enjoyed Becoming Jane
more than me, lol.
I think I would probably enjoy it if I saw it again but the obvious parallels to P&P were a bit irritating.
I enjoyed it most when I forgot it was about Jane Austen to be honest. I did enjoy trying to work out where in Ireland it was filmed...
Hey swap buddy!! I saw it 2 days ago as well. And as for me, it was a choice between 300 and BJ, but my mate didn't relish the idea of seeing "the mother of all battle movies".
I thought it was pretty looking, but DULL. It's never a good thing when you and your mate are giggling over their 'tragic' love affair. If you've seen 2005 P&P there are so many scenes in BJ that are exactly like it. The ending is ridiculous too.
The countryside is bloody gorgeous though, and recognisable as irish countryside. it was filmed in either Co Wicklow or Wexford.
It was fun to watch, but definately wouldn't rush out and tell all my friends about it.
I got no inspiration for the swap whatsoever from BJ.
I'm really worried about this swap because I can't find the time to craft.. I have to study for my Leaving.. the stress of which would probably be understandable to you Saor.. but I have made one or two things, major creative block though!
