I've seen this particular film adaptation of Jane Eyre four times, and I'm still not tired of it. As a faithful fan of the book Jane Eyre, I could not be more pleased with the cast and their faithfulness to Bronte's characters. There will never be another Mr. Rochester for me now that I've seen William Hurt craft his subtleties around this firey and complex man. Charlotte Gainsbourg in the difficult title role satisfies completely. They make an odd pairing for such a profound love story, but I BELIEVE THEM. I watch feeling as if it could only be Them telling the story, and that is perhaps why I keep coming back to the movie. I can't recommend this film enough.
