Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre (2011)

Writer: Charlotte Bronte (um, novel), Moira Buffini (um, screenplay)
Director: Cary Fukunaga
Starring: Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Judi Dench

do i really have to tell you? are you not familiar with bronte? a governess falls in love with her brooding employer who has a dark secret hence the broodiness.

The Woman
i read this in freshman year of high school and HATED it with the passion that i thought it lacked. now i realize i just didn't get it. i was way too young to appreciate it's subtlety. i still think rochester is a huge dickwad, but he did indeed love himself some of that jane, with all her 1800s sauciness. this movie was an excellent representation of the book. it was incredibly well directed, acted and adapted. the cinematography was really quite stunning in it's stark beauty and plainness. almost reflective of the aesthetic of the protagonist.

me likey.
