Michael Fassbender was captivating as Rochester, gruff and still empathetic and heart-rending in his pain. Mia was very good as the self-denying Jane. I could feel her inner turmoil beneath the placid exterior. When they are parting after the wedding you could feel the internal strain of both souls being ripped apart. Judi Dench was a warmth and loving Mrs.Fairfax. I loved the way the setting and the way it was filmed suggested Gothic darkness and mystery without overplaying this theme. I really enjoyed that aspect of the film. My only real complaints are that portions of the story are not tended to but that is owing the fact that it is a film and therefore pressed for time. What is showed and told is very well done. Overall I loved it. Nicely adapted. Heart-rending and enjoyable.
Sumptuous cinematography and I loved Thornfield, it really came alive here. I still like the Timothy Dalton version better, it's a bit lighter, and people tend to forget that there's quite a bit of lightness in their relationship, despite all of its melodrama. The problem with any adaptation of Jane Eyre is, of course, that it's not the book. Without getting into Jane's head, which the book does so explosively well, there's just no comparison. Get. The. Book.
