Overview

Jane Eyre

Screen newcomer Ruth Wilson assumes the role of Charlotte Brontë's eponymous heroine in director Susanna White and screenwriter Sandy Welch's adaptation of the classic 1847 novel. Jane Eyre is a plain but spirited woman who leaves behind the cruel confines of a charity home to work as a governess for the enigmatic Edward Rochester (Toby Stephens). The master of Thornfield Hall, Rochester hires Jane to watch over the young Adele. As a series of increasingly strange occurrences begin to unfold in Thornfield Hall's North Tower, the young governess attempts to maintain her virtue while entering into a soulful relationship with her unrepentantly lecherous employer.

Really appreciate this particular movie version of this book. Can watch it again and again.

While this tends to skirt over the symbolic aspects of Charlotte Bronte's literary work... I find that this is one of the better takes on trying to bring this utterly romantic and ahead of its time tale to the screen. I recommend it fully to anyone who likes to watch longer adaptions of well written historical dramas that end happily in the end~

This is my absolute favorite Jane Eyre film. The casting is perfect (Toby Stephens lends just the right amount of sexiness and intrigue to Mr. Rochester and Ruth Wilson is perfect as meek but still spunky Jane) and the script remains loyal to the book. Definitely a must see!

I loved the chemistry between Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester. Until I viewed this version, the attraction never seemed quite plausible to me. This Jane is a woman with strength and humor as well as intellect. Bravo!

This is the BEST Jane Eyre ever created. Period. It knocks out all the other versions. If you are a fan, you should love this. My only qualm is that Toby Stephens is a little too attractive still even after the fire, but I got over that rather easily. Ruth Wilson was just spectacular as Jane Eyre, and finally they've picked someone to play her that isn't overly Hollywood gorgeous but has another sense of beauty radiating from within, I just loved her!!!!!!!! You will want to buy this one and add it to your library for sure!!

My favorite Jane Eyre will probably still be the film with Orson Welles. There is no better Mr. Rochester. However, this film kept true to the book and I am a purist at heart and like that you get the whole story. The acting is wonderful and the cinema is superb. I highly recommend this film.

Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens bring to life the emotional tale of Jane Eyre in a way that cannot be matched. Their acting is from the heart you can't help but feel everything that the characters experience. I happened upon the movie on Masterpiece Theatre a few weeks ago and was in agony when at the end of two wonderful hours I found that the story was continued a week later. In the meantime I grabbed my copy of Jane Eyre and pretty much ignored my family as I devoured the book once more! It is a rare thing when a movie equals or excels the written story, but this film does just that. It is the most romantic film I have ever seen. I can't wait to watch it again.

Outstanding! Bravo!! Brilliant Casting!!! I've seen many different film versions of Jane Eyre, and this particular adaptation far exceeded my expectations, especially in the romance department "great chemistry between the two lead actors"! If you're a Jane Eyre fan like me, don't you dare miss this one!

I remember seeing a scene of this on TV (can't remember which one to be honest) and then later the movie. I finished watching this one and must say that I like this better than the movie. The directing, the actors, the settings is great. Especially Ruth as Jane who reminded me so much of Liv Tyler and Anna Paquin (who was in the movie as the young Jane). In this of course its the story of Jane when she was young being sent to a school after being mistreated by her aunt and cousins then later as an adult now a governess and meeting Mr. Rochester. Toby as Rochester surprised for me some reason but at the same time he was just great playing the character. I noticed some scenes that were in the film and others that were not or well just played out differently. At times it felt like a horror movie, especially the beginning and of course the "red room." I like the story and the characters and by seeing this and the movie makes me want to read the book even more. That's how much I like this version and if I were to see this again. I would. Honestly recommend this and the movie even if you read the book or not.

Having just seen the PBS showing of this version of Jane Eyre, I am eagerly awaiting my order for the DVD. This version has incorporated scences often left out of the previous movie versions of this wonderful story. Is she too pretty to play Jane Eyre? Is he too handsome? yeah...but they do a wonderful job anyway! The scenery is beautiful and the story moves right along. I would heartily recommend this to anyone.

I have watched a few different versions of Jane Eyre, and this is my favorite by far. Saw it on PBS a few weeks ago and pre- ordered it immediately. Definitely worth the wait.
