Becoming Jane (2007)
a beautifully filmed picture focusing on Jane's reported romance with Tom LeFroy, starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy. Based solely on a couple of letters where Jane mentions Tom, the film is largely speculative but still entertaining.

(loosely based on Pride and Prejudice and the sequel is loosely based on Persuasion)
A Bollywood update of Jane Austen's classic tale, in which Mrs. Bakshi is eager to find suitable husbands for her four unmarried daughters. When the rich single gentlemen Balraj and Darcy come to visit, the Bakshis have high hopes, though circumstance and boorish opinions threaten to get in the way of romance.
(I've enjoyed Bollywood films so when I heard about this adaptation, I was excited to say the least. Sadly, I was disappointed in the outcome. It felt like an americanized version of a bollywood film and left me dissatisfied.)
Pride and Prejudice (2003)

They are joined by Tom. His background is much simpler and he is critical of their way of life.
But he finds a soul mate in Audrey, who without his knowledge falls in love with him. (based on Mansfield Park)
