    Striking cinematography, good acting performances, but seemed to lack a bit of heart and chemistry. 8 years 1 month ago

    I didn't know what to expect as I haven't read the book, but I thought it was such a beautiful movie, one could really feel the tension and the strong bond of love between the characters. I thought the actors did a brilliant job and I loved it. 9 years ago

    2011's adaptation of Jane Eyre, with rising star Mia Wasikowska in the lead role and Michael Fassbender as the damn peculiar (everyone's peculiar on Planet Bronte except for Judi Dench's Mrs. Fairfax, really) Lord Rochester, is the essence of Gothic. Dressed up as a ghost story, with frequent allusions to the world of fairies and goblins and strange happenstance, the book and film use Jane's limited point of view (which is not the same as a limited mind) to create strangeness and fear. The fuller picture - no less "horrific" - is something the audience puts together over time. And of course, it also serves as background metaphor for a young woman's inner turmoil. Jane is one of those pre-feminist figures that seems shocking in the context of when she was put to paper, insolent with the Church, completely convinced that the soul transcends class and makes all human beings equal, and ambitious in her need to expand her horizons and create choices for herself. Jane Eyre is grand, literate melodrama, with bizarre characters and dark situations, and the film captures that more than adequately, using cinematic techniques (like achronological editing) to heighten the mystery. 6 years ago
