Storyline

Plain Jane Hartman hates her life. She's goofy, boring and only has sex if she reads Iris Murdoch novels out loud to her loopy boyfriend. Her oldest friend Antonia McGill knows about everything. She orders the right food; she can complain and get results. She's beautiful and has a brilliant career. Is it any wonder that they hate each other's guts?

Antonia and Jane is the essence of what makes British films excellent.
26 April 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Antonia and Jane is a wonderful British Film that deserves praise for its depth, its originality, and its gentle humor. It is quite touching, and deserves accolades for every aspect of the film. The Soundtrack to the film is delightful also, especially the song at the end of the film. This film will evoke tears.
