  • Fukunaga, son of a Japanese father and a Swedish mother, is a filmmaker to watch. He has reanimated a classic for a new generation, letting Jane Eyre resonate with terror and tenderness. show more

  • This latest adaptation of the Charlotte Brontë novel is careful, respectful and even enjoyable, and yet dry, singularly humorless and played without the lavishness of spirit that makes sense of Gothic melodrama. show more

  • The look of this version may be the finest of the 27 Jane Eyre film and television re-tellings. show more

    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.
