John P. McCarthy Cary Joji Fukunaga's romantic thriller Jane Eyre is to 19th-century literature what Black Swan is to ballet: a thoroughly cinematic, occasionally exhilarating reimagining of a repertoire standard.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Kate Carraway Wasikowska and Fassbender play it from different sides, she with a consuming restraint, and he with...the opposite. Their tonal differences amount to a perfectly realized chemistry, rendering one of the most tragic literary love stories indelible and, though appropriately chaste, viscerally hot.
James Berardinelli Jane Eyre is good enough to provide lovers of classic literature with a reason to venture to theaters without being subjected to a salacious or demeaning adaptation. However, the film's stately approach, even with its horror overtones, is unlikely to win new converts to the Jane Eyre fan club, and there is nothing so definitive about the production that it will dissuade future filmmakers from bringing their interpretations to the screen.
Peter Travers Wasikowska and Fassbender make a pair of ravishing romantics, giving the movie unexpected sizzle. Repressed sexuality will do it every time.
T. Durgin The new adaptation of Jane Eyre feels more like a class assignment than a movie.
Tomatometer Cary Fukunaga directs a fiery and elegant adaptation, while Mia Wasikowska delivers possibly the best portrayal of the title character ever.
