3.5 out of 10 Same story but well told with great photography
Andrew from Dublin, 03 Apr 2012
The director adds a little spice to the well known storyline by chopping the time line. It works well. The acting performances vary, Mia... is very good as the shy Jane, not sure about her portrayal of the other aspects. Fassbender doesn't have the same presence as Orson Welles (but who does) but does a competent job. The bleached out colour of the film conveys well the bleak but stunning landscapes. Overall the film was enjoyable if a little slow at times. Worth the 120 minute watch. If you haven't read the book, do!

4 out of 10 Great Film
Seamus from Monaghan, 28 Nov 2012
Jane Eyre. You know the story and so you know what to expect. It is what you think it'll be. Well acted and engaging. but i spent a lot of the film thinking the BBC would have this on as a 2 parter at Christmas and I'd enjoy it more.

4.5 out of 10 Stunning
Claire from Galway, 25 Sep 2012
Mad into period dramas I absolutely adored this version of Jane Eyre. The cinematography was just gorgeous, with some absolutely stunning scenes - and sure Fassbender plays Mr Rochester - what more could you ask for!

majella from Meath, 19 Apr 2012
No where near as good as book or original movie but thought it was watchable thought they skipped over a lot of it but dwelled on some too long .

What's it about....
Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender star in the romantic drama based on Charlotte Bronte's classic novel, from acclaimed director Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre). In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. As she reflects upon the people and emotions that have defined her, it is clear that the isolated and imposing residence - and Mr. Rochester's coldness - have sorely tested the young woman's resilience, forged...
