You've heard the name. Now, experience her story.
Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) star in the romantic drama based on Charlotte Brontë's classic novel, from acclaimed director Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre).
In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. As she reflects upon the people and emotions that have defined her, it is clear that the isolated and imposing residence - and Mr. Rochester's coldness - have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. She must now act decisively to secure her own future and come to terms with the past that haunts her - and the terrible secret that Mr. Rochester is hiding and that she has uncovered.
Dame Judi Dench also stars.

Fresh: Screenwriter Moira Buffini sticks pretty closely to the novel, and director Cary Fukunaga conjures a drab tone that nicely sets off the characters' violent but rigidly controlled passions.-J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, December 13, 2011
Rotten: The direction by Cary Fukunaga is real by-the-numbers rote.-Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia), October 18, 2011
Fresh: The new Jane Eyre is notably well-made in almost every respect and should you want to watch an adaptation of the story just now, highly recommendable.-David Sexton, This is London, September 09, 2011
Fresh: Those craving gloomy stairways and thunderclap atmospherics might not come away completely sated, but Fukunaga's delicate artistry leaves it hard to ask for much more.-Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph, September 08, 2011
Pride and prejudice has always been my favorite book, movie. Now this movie, fell in love. it felt more real.
