Becoming Jane (2007) Poster


Anna Maxwell Martin: Cassandra Austen



  • Cassandra Austen : [regarding 'First Impressions', which will later become 'Pride and Prejudice']  How does the story begin?

    Jane Austen : Badly.

    Cassandra Austen : And then?

    Jane Austen : It gets worse.

  • Cassandra Austen : You'll lose everything. Family, place. For what? A lifetime of drudgery on a pittance? A child every year and no means to lighten the load? How will you write, Jane?

    Jane Austen : I do not know, but happiness is within my grasp and I cannot help myself.

    Cassandra Austen : There is no sense in this.

    Jane Austen : If you could have your Robert back, even like this, would you do it?

  • Jane Austen : It's something I began in London. It is the tale of a young woman. Two young women. Better than their circumstances.

    Cassandra Austen : So many are.

    Jane Austen : And two young gentlemen who receive much better than their deserts as so very many do.
