Todd Gilchrist raves about the latest incarnation of 'Jane Eyre': "Remarkably, in Cary Fukunaga's interpretation of the Charlotte Bronte classic, you can almost see the text exploding with energy as the actors bring it to life -- which is why even audiences disinclined to embrace period pictures or laborious literary adaptations will find themselves enchanted, even perhaps swooning."

The gush doesn't continue with Catherine Hardwicke. Jenni Miller writes: "Some audiences will find it too mild for their tastes, while others who might have enjoyed the bosom-heaving romance of it all will have been put off by the too-teasing trailers and marketing materials. The plot unravels too quickly and easily to make this journey through the woods entirely satisfying for anyone expecting anything meatier."
