    Extremely poorly done----It was unbelievable---I did not believe she had a difficult life, that her employer was gruff and rough around the edges, nor that they truly loved each other. No chemistry, little emotion, poor acting. I truly loved the prior two verions of Jany Eyre--this one should not have been made.

    Wonderful acting, but unfortunately it\'s still Jane Eyre.

    Very poorly done. If you want a better rendition of Charlotte Bronte\'s Jane Eyre you should watch the 1973 version.
