When flying recently I got the chance to watch the new Jane Eyre Film…..Which naturally I LEAPT at!
Leading lady Mia Wasikowska played Jane Eyre:
While playing opposite her as Edward Fairfax Rochester was Michael Fassbender:
And for good measure no one can say no to Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax the Housekeeper:
I was suitably impressed by Thornfield Hall:
And I enjoyed the word sparring and ominous conversations betwixt Rochester and Jane Eyre:
And of course there ultimate love which covers rough ground, a maniacal wife and a house fire:
However, I have to say that I could not quite believe their passion, despite the above picture, and I still think that no one can outdo Toby Stephens as Rochester and the general brilliance of the BBC adaptation:
For me Jane Eyre is all about the passion which the film, although good and deserving of a watch, somehow lacked – Though I thought the northern accents were a nice touch – What are your thoughts?
