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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Contender April 3, 2011
When a story has been adapted for the big and small screen as many times as Charlotte Brontë's 1847 Bildungsroman, "Jane Eyre" (nearly two dozen times since the silent era according to my count), there are bound to be some changes in hopes of setting it apart from the pack when yet another incarnation arrives.

In director Cary Joji Fukunaga's "Jane Eyre," the story begins out of sequence. Instead of finding Jane as a child, living in the oppressive and abusive Reed household as we do in the novel, the film begins with an adult Jane near starving and near death. Once rescued from the bitter cold by the Rivers family, her past is revealed to us as a flashback. This sequencing makes for a very absorbing film.

Every shot of the film is so rich with texture, and composed in such a way that it could be frozen in time and featured in Grace Coddington orchestrated shoot for "Vogue." The authenticity is so exacting that at times you can nearly feel the fierce Yorkshire winds chill your bones. Costume designer Michael O'Connor shows appropriate restraint with the costumes (after all, our heroine is a plain Jane), but when his creativity is allowed to let loose, as it is with Mrs Reed and Lady Ingram, he produces some of the most exquisite period costumes I have ever seen captured on film.

The cinematography and costuming work most harmoniously together during the wedding scene between Jane (Mia Wasikowska) and Rochester (Michael Fassbender). Attired in her veiled wedding dress, Wasikowska looks so preternaturally beautiful-almost like a specter-echoing Rochester's description of her earlier in the film.

Wasikowska, seen last year in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," makes for a wonderful, three dimensional Jane.

I read this book in high school and hated it. My wife read it and, of course, loved it. That being said, we had to rent it. It was a pretty good movie!

Director's Cut?
The initial, rough cut Fukanaga mentioned was 2 1/2 hrs. But the final cut was 2 hrs. Various sites report that both DVD and Blu-Ray versions will include deleted scenes as additional material. In a budget-obsessed industry, this is the best we can hope for.

Why is this so expensive?
Studios make the bulk of their profits from dvd sales, unless you're Lucasfilm or Disney, which reap licensing fees from "Tie-ins." Box sets aren't selling as well as they once did. Look, wait four months then dive in. :-)
