Becoming Jane Austen I watched this movie today and absolutely loved it. If it is true to Jane's life, then her characters were certainly happier in love than she was. I love when Jane and her mother are arguing about Jane's turning down a marriage proposal. Jane says if she marries, it will be for love, not for money. Her mother says, "And I have to dig my own damn potatoes!"
