    A little disappointing...

    I have seen several versions of Jane Eyre & this wasn't my favorite. I was a little disappointed in the film quality & sound quality on this DVD. It reminded me of a film from the '70s or '80s. I guess I expected it to be a bit more cinematically pleasing since it came out in 1996! The acting was OK, but the BBC version w/ Toby Stephens & Ruth Wilson is BY FAR the best! The A&E version w/ Ciaran Hinds & Samantha Morton would be second I suppose. OK movie, but there are far better versions out there.

    Jane Eyre

    I never heard of the book but remembered seeing an adaptation to it, the one with Ruth Wilson. I then saw this one and it would been better if I had read the book first. As a movie its interesting, maybe a little fast in some parts, particularly the ending to be honest, but still a good film. You have the title character who is sent to a school after living a harsh life with her Aunt and cousins. At the school she isn't treated well there either except for two who become her friends then later as an adult she goes to a house as a governess and meets Mr. Rochester. The actors did really good, especially Charlotte as Jane and William Hurt as Rochester. Is it just me or in some scenes with William as Rochester remind anyone of Liam Neeson? Anyway, obviously you should read the book first then see this movie. Recommend this and Wuthering Heights also by author Emily Bronte.

    You must see the Tim Dalton/Zelah Clarke Version

    If anyone was made to play Rochester, it was Timothy Dalton. I have not seen the Zefferelli version, but I do not believe the BBC version can ever be surpassed. Zelah Clarke is a perfect Jane to Dalton's superb Rochester. He is Mr. Rochester. If you love the book Jane Eyre, you have to see the real characters. That is how convincing this version is. The BBC version has the feel of the time, and magnificent acting. A sure winner!
