Edward Fairfax Rochester:
I wish at times I were a trifle better adapted to match with her, externally. Tell me now, fairy that you are, you couldn't give a charm or a filter or something of the sort?

There is absolutely no blinkin' reason for anyone not to like this movie
Jane Eyre is simply one of the best movies I've ever seen. It ranks very close to A&E's Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, and is even better than that excellent series in regards to a beautiful atmosphere, faithfulness to the book, and amazing actors. Not a single actor is deficient in this movie; and to all comment makers who thought they found the movie boring or dull or uninteresting or TOO LONG! all I can say is: HAVE THEY READ THE BOOK? Charlotte Bronte's book is an absolutely smashing read, and the movie follows it almost to the letter. If they found the movie boring, they must have fallen asleep ten minutes into the book. I love movies that don't murder the novels they are based on and this movie, far from being an atrocious mutilation, is a great compliment to Charlotte Bronte's original masterpiece.
