SO EXCITED! Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. I think everyone in high school has had to read the book. I also had to read the book for English, but I was way ahead of everyone else in our chapter assignments. I love the romance in it, even though some people might find it a bit creepy. This new movie version of Jane Eyre stars Mia Wasikowska as Jane and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. The trailer tries to play on the supernatural elements of the book. I have read other websites’ posts on this trailer and they were a bit confused about the trailer featuring these “scary” scenes. They are in the book. This movie seems to be playing more on the gloominess of Mr. Rochester’s Thornfield Hall.
Jane Eyre also stars Jaime Bell, Judi Dench, Tamzin Merchant, Sally Hawkins, Imogen Poots, and Simon McBurney.
I would highly recommend the book. If you want to watch a good movie version of Jane Eyre, I would suggest the 2006 Masterpiece Theatre adaptation starring Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens.
I cannot wait (again) for Jane Eyre to be in theatres March 11, 2011.
