A gothic, beautiful Jane Eyre 

Newest adaptation of Brontë novel soars

Cary Joji Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre is a riveting adaptation of the Charlotte Brontë novel. Jane (Mia Wasikowska), a strong-willed governess, falls in love with her boss---the lecherous-turned-lovable Mr. Rochester (Michael Fassbender)---who owns the haunted Thornfield Manor. Fukunaga tastefully alters the book’s plot and reconstructs the story in a suspenseful, non-linear fashion, using flashbacks to summarize key details from Jane’s traumatic childhood. A palette of muted colours, moody grey skies, and candlelit interiors envelop you in Jane’s bleak world---the sun only shines during the film’s tearful finale. Moira Buffini’s screenplay is more heartbreak than humour---though, Mrs. Fairfax (Judi Dench), the manor’s housekeeper, delivers a few well-timed witticisms. Gothic landscapes and an impeccable cast make it a must-see period piece.
