NOT too handsome, and NOT too old...Just wonderful--my favorite version of the story of Jane Eyre. Thank you so much!

One time when my family went out of town, I went to the local store, and rented at least four different versions of DVD's of Jane Eyre, and watched them with my cat and dog. Well, by about DVD version number two, I had to stop watching the first part of the story, and begin to watch the story when Jane leaves Lowood School. The first part of her life is unbearable to watch the story, of. But this was my favorite movie version of the story of Jane Eyre. I loved the way in this movie that Jane and Mr. Rochester spoke and interacted with each other, in their conversations with each other. I did not see this developed as much in some of the other different versions of this story. I liked that they did this in this version of the movie. It showed how they were relating to each other, and growing closer. They were alike--yet very different from each other. And hey--it's o.k. if Mr. Rochester is handsome in this version. How many women do you know, who mind watching a great story and movie, with a handsome guy in it as one of the main characters? And Jane was not too old in this movie for the role. She was wonderful! Thank you so much.
