    I agree that this film did a really good job of establishing a story that does not seem outdated. Although a few of Jane’s struggles seem a product of her time, they were presented in a way that allowed me to relate to everything she was going through on a very modern level. The choice of an age-appropriate extremely (physically) Plain Jane was essential to not taking the audience out of the film. If characters constantly referred to Jane as unattractive, but she was played by Keira Knightly with unbrushed hair it would have just been ridiculous. In this Jane, we are forced to focus on her other qualities which are the things that make her such an extraordinary character.
