Jane Eyre
Jane Eyre starring Mia Wasikowska: DVD Cover This latest version of Jane Eyre, the romantic drama based on Charlotte Brontë's classic novel has been beautifully directed by Cary Fukunaga ("Sin Nombre"). In the story, Jane (Mia Wasikowska "Alice in Wonderland") flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester (Michael Fassbender "Inglourious Basterds"). It is clear that the isolated and imposing residence - and Mr. Rochester's coldness - have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned and sent to live in the bleak mansion. Now, as she dashes across the stormy landscape as if pursued by demons and menaced by a ghostly, wind-borne voice, she is taken in and nursed back to health by a kind young clergyman, St. John Rivers (Jamie Bell "Billy Elliot"), and his two sisters (Holliday Grainger and Tamzin Merchant). Then her life unfolds in a series of flashbacks.

Jane realizes that she must now act decisively to secure her own future and come to terms with her past that haunts her - and the terrible secret that Mr. Rochester is hiding and that she has uncovered. Among the excellent actors playing supporting roles you'll find Judi Dench ("Shakespeare in Love") as the
talkative housekeeper who fills Jane with misleading gossip and questionable advice, Sally Hawkins ("Happy-Go-Lucky") as the nasty aunt and Imogen Poots ("28 Weeks Later") as the pretty rich girl who almost derails Jane’s chances of finding true love. They are all fine in their brief appearances, but it's the performances of Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender that make this Jane Eyre memorable.
