Jane Eyre


Jane Eyre
The umpteenth film version of Bronte's classic novel has a younger cast, hoping for a younger audience. In essence a tale of 'forbidden' love and passion between a young woman and her older boss, the action plays out on a remote windswept estate. Through flashbacks we learn of the woman's past and how she came to be where she is, and slowly the dark secret her boss is hiding is revealed.

118 minutes.

John P. McCarthy quote iconCary 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.

eye Weekly
Kate Carraway quote iconWasikowska 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.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconJane 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.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWasikowska and Fassbender make a pair of ravishing romantics, giving the movie unexpected sizzle. Repressed sexuality will do it every time.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconThe new adaptation of Jane Eyre feels more like a class assignment than a movie.
