We gave it a C-

ANTIDOTE TO The swordplay of Pirates 3. This look at author Jane Austen’s early romantic travails proves that the pen is at least an alternative to the you-know-what.

WHY WE’RE EXCITED Just like Devil Wears Prada, the film is loosely based on real events and sees the lovely Anne Hathaway in all kinds of gorgeous clothing opposite top talent from both sides of the Atlantic. (August 3)

HATHAWAY SAYS ”Anybody that’s ever loved and lost will be into it. I think of it like a period version of The Notebook. If you like melancholia and ‘truthiness,’see Becoming Jane!”
