Charlotte Bronte's classic novel is filmed yet again. The story of the Yorkshire orphan who becomes a governess to a young French girl and finds love with the brooding lord of the manor is given a standard romantic flare, but sparks do not seem to happen between the two leads in this version.

After I finished watching this film, I rewound it and watched it again. It is totally captivating. For me to really enjoy a book or a film, I have to like the characters, and I love the characters in "Jane Eyre." Samantha Morton is the perfect Jane: reserved, but not stiff. Ciaran Hinds as the gruff but passionate Mr. Rochester brings this (dare I say) "melodramatic" character to Earth. And the scenery...!!! I recently read the novel and found that they tweaked the story a bit, but captured its essence precisely
purists won't be disappointed. I only wish they'd made a 5-hour
mini-series out of it!
