Becoming Jane
Wednesday, September 5, 2007 at 11:33PM

The Friday before school began, I saw Becoming Jane with the non-conformist.  The movie had not gotten very good reviews, but I was still curious. However, I loved the story and I related to Jane. There is something universal about the struggle to follow your bliss while living in a society that places such rigid expectations on women. I was glad that I saw the movie, but I am not sure if this movie is for everyone.  I also found myself longing to see a movie where the main character does not have to choose between career and marriage or where true love really does find a way in the midst of many obstacles.  A realistic portrayal of those situations does not seem to exist. 

Which Screen?  Either the one, the beautiful scenery is best for the big screen, but the important plot points will come through no matter the size of your screen.
