Disappointing, 17 July 2011
Author: nikkinaboo from UK

I have watched a fair few adaptations of Jane Eyre as it is one of my favourite books. Sadly, I found this version very disappointing. A strong cast was hampered by a poor script. When you have such rich source material, why tamper with it? I felt like I was watching a dumbed down Hollywood romance, full of clichéd lines and looks of longing.

I agree wholeheartedly with Rita Raftis in her description of Rochester and Jane. Both were portrayed contrary to the book. I usually enjoy the work of Ciaran Hinds and Samantha Morton, both strong actors, but if this was the first time I had seen either acting I would not search out any more of their work.

I also agree that the 1980s version starring Timothy Dalton is by far the most faithful adaptation I have seen. The interiors are obviously filmed in a studio and the age of some of the actors may be a little wrong but with regards to story and dialogue it is wonderful.
