    4.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Reaction September 5, 2011
    Format:DVD
    That's what I have after watching this dvd twice: a decidedly mixed reaction. Like many other reviewers, I'm a die-hard Jane Eyre fan, having read the book too many times to count and seen at least 6 film adaptations (I think there have been at least 8). This dvd is the 5th I've added to my collection, which my children find absolutely hilarious. But anyway, I wanted to see this one at the theater but it was only in my hometown for about a week, so I ordered it as soon as Amazon had it. I guess I should just lay out my pros and cons and let the chips fall where they may.

    Pros: The casting is possibly the best of any version I've seen. Mia Whatchamacallit (sorry, can't remember her name right now) was 21 when the film was shot, making her about the right age to play Jane. All the other versions I've seen cast actresses who were well past their teen years, so it was good to see a more-age-approriate Jane. She also did a nice job with the role, expressing shades of emotion in her face since her lines are frankly rather limited. Michael Fassbender is honestly too young (34) and too good-looking (he was the smokin' hot warrior Stelios in 300) but does a very good job inhabiting the character of Rochester. He's very gruff with just the right hint of humor to make Rochester the irritating but somehow intriguing guy he is. The other roles were also well-cast. Judi Dench is always amazing, and Jamie Bell (though not as handsome as St.John should be, imho) was appropriately stern. The cinematography of the movie is just lovely. I really liked the lighting. Everything at Gateshead is sunlit and colorful, belying the hellish existence Jane endures there.

    5.0 out of 5 stars perfect March 26, 2011
    It was so good, I went to see it twice in one day. Mia Wasikowska, who played Jane Eyre, and Michael Fassbender, Mr. Rochester, were perfect. I believed their love and suffering. I used to think that no one can do better Rochester than Timothy Dalton, but after seeing this adaptation, Fassbender took that spot. In other adaptations Mr. Rochester overshadowed Jane, but in this film Jane and Rochester are equal. I loved that dialogue follows the book pretty closely and it was not too modernized. Judi Dench was great as Mrs. Fairfax, and Jamie Bell was believable as cold St.John Rivers. Of course the scenery and costumes were gorgeous. For a 2 hr film director Cary Fukunaga did wonders. Highly recommended! Now I can't wait for the DVD to come out (hopefully with special features and deleted scenes).
    p.s. I forgot to mention that the music score is lovely and fits the mood perfectly.

    Even though many have seen at least one or two film adaptations of Bronte's blockbuster gothic romance novel...there is still plenty of good reason to see this version. I think that Mia Wasikowska's acting is pitch-perfect - maybe even the definitive characterization of this fascinating woman. She knows that she has been unlucky, but is intelligently waiting, watching, and analyzing everyone before she makes her next move.

    The time and place - England's North country mid -nineteenth century. Jane is unloved by her aunt, and after a fight with her cousin is shipped off - rather brutally - to a boarding school run by a self-important and cruel headmaster. She develops one friendship there - a girl called Helen - but loses Helen to an illness.

    The beginning of the altercation between Jane and her male cousin is nerve shattering as he bashes her head into a wall, and she (deservedly) hits him back. Of course - the aunt sees and hears only wants she wants to observe...and Jane is conveniently eliminated from the family.

    During the prison like experience in Lowood School, Jane becomes "educated" to serve the elite. After some mysterious circumstances, she secures a job as governess of a female ward of Sir Edward Rochester. He and she develop an uneasy friendship at first - which ultimately blooms into love...as both have had very difficult pasts and need to repair their souls. I enjoyed Jane's character telling the truth in a polite way when she tells Mr. Rochester at one point he speaks nonsense.

    If I could offer one small critique - the early history of Jane Eyre is skipped over rather quickly. The meanness of the boarding school (Lowood School) is rather underplayed...and the necessary friendship with Helen is just a glimpse.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Jane Eyre adaptation June 10, 2011
    Format:Blu-ray
    I've seen a lot of the Jane Eyre adaptations (though not all 20+ of them) and so I wasn't sure what to expect going in to this film. I was happy to discover that this is by far my favorite of all the films, television series, etc. Mia Wasikowska's Jane Eyre is luminous - my favorite of all the Janes, and Michael Fassbender's Mr. Rochester has got to be the sexiest Rochester in the entire canon. The cinematography and music are beautiful and the use of natural light and candle light lend the appropriately gloomy gothic atmosphere.

    First off, I am the biggest fan of Jane Eyre. I have seen all the adaptations, have several copies of the book and would claim it is my favorite novel of all time. That being said, I was severely disappointed with this adaptation of the novel. I felt that the characters were incredibly static and did not develop as they should. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender (him especially), however I felt that their performances fell short of the actual characters they were portraying.

    There was little development as the movie progressed. The character of Jane grows from this meek and timid girl into this powerhouse of a woman. However, in this adaptation, she is not afraid to state her opinion and is bold right out of the gate. The audience cannot grow and push for her as a character if she does not develop as the story progresses. Rochester is the same way. In the real story, he at first comes off as a gruff and enigmatic person. He changes though from that dark, brooding character into one who is to be pitied- he starts off strong and domineering and ends up the weaker of Jane and himself. In this version however, he is this character that is both gruff and tortured straight from the get go. He does not develop into being the weaker character.

    Things just progressed at an odd pace in this film. However I will say I did like the creative use of flashbacks to tell the story and the hints of things from the book (i.e. when the tree Jane and Rochester were standing under gets struck by lightning) without actually drawing attention to them.
