A movie based on a small but potentially significant moment in the life of Jane Austen.
If you are familiar with her works then the film will be richer and more entertaining.
Seemingly her world turned and changed on small events; we can but guess what her life might have been.

However, with a different outcome the world
of Literature would be a poorer place.

Not as strong as the recent 'Miss Potter' movie (though with similar themes)
however given the limited documentation
on Jane Austen's life the film holds up well.

We are given to speculate as to the genisis of her stories
characters and phrases.

Anything that causes cogitation can only be good.
