Jane Eyre is based on the classic novel that has been interpreted many times in film and on television. This version is dark, almost gothic. The performances are fabulous – Mia Wasakowska, who was so fabulous as Alice in Wonderland, plays the title role of Jane. She looks fragile, but she’s strong and smart and fiercely independent – the kind of heroine we love to see in the movies! From what I can remember, since I read the book back in high school, the film stays pretty true to Charlotte Bronte’s story. Tragic, romantic, hopeful… worth seeing!
