Today after I dropped the kids off at school I went to go and watch a movie-"Becoming Jane". Wow, what a movie! I loved it. I enjoyed it far more than Pride and Prejudice. It was a bit more "real" for me. The emotion was far more there than it was in Pride and Prejudice. And I guess I am not a huge Kiera Knightly fan, she comes off as a bit false to me, like she knows she is being filmed as too aware of herself and looking pretty or cool for the camera. I just don't get her. I do like Ann Hathaway though, she is a sweet and has a lovely face.
Plus James McAvoy is quite a hottie! Well at least I think so, I enjoyed his character too far more than I did Mr Wickham in P&P.
I really recommend this movie if you like period films. Being a huge Jane Austen fan, this was really nice to learn more about her life story. Without giving the story away..I would suggest you take tissues with! I just love the English country side too, so serene and beautiful. A big part of me feels I should of been born in that era, I would of suited it . At heart I am a country girl. I have grown up on farms, surrounded by rolling hills, animals, horses, sugar cane fields and never felt at home in a city. That is why I get so freaked out driving on highways! I love nature and the country side and forests and I could spend a whole day just walking through forests or in the nature reserve. Sigh....
Some more photos of flowers I have taken today.
