Classic British period drama ‘Jane Eyre’ directed by Cary Fukunaga is delivered with such refined artistry that it brings a true sense of authenticity to this 19th century adaptation.
Eyre struggles as an orphan through her difficult childhood and becomes governess at Thornfield Hall. Against her judgement and position in society she falls in love with her master, the haunted Edward Rochester. Eyre’s strong sense of values does not permit her to continue the strong love she feels when she discovers his secret.
Mia Wasikowska portrays Eyre with a raw intensity, intelligence and innocence which compliments Mr Rochester’s (Michael Fassbender) dark, playful arrogance. Dame Judi Dench plays the motherly housekeeper who commands her scenes with a superb performance.
Cary Fukunaga successfully brings Bronte’s tale to the screen developing Eyre's maturation, whilst capturing the emotions and experiences that accompany her growth to adulthood...a beautifully executed release...
