New Jane Eyre Movie in Theaters Now
Cary Fukunaga's film adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's classic novel, Jane Eyre, is now in theaters and the reviews are glowing. A. O. Scott of The New York Times wrote that it was a "splendid example of how to tackle the daunting duty of turning a beloved work of classic literature into a movie" and Karina Longworth of The Village Voice wrote that "[u]sing Brontë's text as the basis for an inquiry into free will versus servitude, [Cary] Fukunaga mounts a subtly shaded, yet emotionally devastating, examination of what it really means to choose one's own way." Directed by Cary Fukunaga, the lead roles are played by Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), with a supporting cast including Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, and Sally Hawkins.
