The classic novel JANE EYRE by Charlotte Brontë has been adapted to film by director Cary Fukunaga and will be released in theaters on March 11, 2011. The story follows a young governess named Jane Eyre (played by Mia Wasikowska) who leaves to work for a wealthy man named Edward Rochester (played by Michael Fassbender). The combination of isolation and the icy demeanor of Mr. Rochester wears on the resilient Jane Eyre who leaves only to return to uncover the secrets Mr. Rochester is hiding. Other actors to star in the film include: Judi Dench, Jamie Bell, Sally Hawkins, Imogen Poots, Holliday Grainger and Tamsin Merchant.
Sadly, Jane Eyre has always been one of those books that is on my “to read” list but inevitably gets shoved to the side for other less classic novels. Maybe after watching this film it’ll intrigue me enough to pick it up and push on through it. Although casting Mia Wasikowska in the lead is a hit against it, I know everyone thinks she’s this new up and coming sensation but I haven’t really seen enough of her acting range to think she’s that fantastic…yet.
