Jane Austen is the latest author to be portrayed by a startlingly attractive actor. In real life her beauty resided more in her prose, but should this glamorisation bother us?
Yes. Anne Hathaway is no Jane Austen.
I've been eagerly awaiting the "biopic" Becoming Jane (which I believe will be out in August), but the trailer I viewed this morning suggests Hollywood more than Haworth. The film is clearly meant to be a visual treat rather than an intellectual one, and that's a shame.
