Jane Eyre

14 Sep
Jane Eyre is one of my favourite books, I literally could not put it down. So when I heard this classic was going to be turned into a film I was understandably excited.

Mia Wasikowska plays the extraordinary orphan Jane Eyre whose troubled childhood and the loss of her best friend has caused her to have a very isolated life. Jane winds up as a governess to Mr Rochester’s ward. After returning home, Mr Rochester (Michael Fassbender) and Jane have an instant attraction but a dark secret hidden in the house is preventing them from being together.

But of course you already knew that if you read the book. Although the movie is good and doesn’t differ too much from the novel it is a shortened version. I don’t think you get the full understanding of Jane and Mr Rochester’s relationship and Jane’s hardship growing up as you would if you read the book.

Also stars Jamie Bell and Judi Dench and is rated PG.

I give the book five stars and the movie four.
