Quotes

Jane Eyre: Hurry, Hannah. We must light the fires before they arrive.
Hannah: [to St.John] She wants fire in every room, in places where they never were.
Jane Eyre: What's the use of five thousands pounds if you can't light a few fires at Christmas?
St John Rivers: Twenty thousands.
Jane Eyre: St. John, I'll not hear another word. We've been over it again and again. Our uncle left a nephew and three nieces. We must all profit from his will equally.
St John Rivers: Jane, you've never had money. You do not know what use you may put it to.

Outstanding drama - the best of the BBC
26 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A lavish production in all the right ways (script, cast, direction, location, details), this is a perfect literary adaptation - very much in the heritage of the BBC's 1996 Pride and Prejudice, but perhaps even better. Toby Stephens (the son of Dame Maggie Smith) plays the brusque, flawed Mr Rochester with exactly the right admixture of arrogance and warmth, while newcomer Ruth Wilson is luminous as English rose Jane Eyre - like a swan swimming, her impassive face nevertheless conveys a wealth of feeling churning beneath. The location filming is handled deftly, with careful camera angles leaving us with the sense that we haven't seen everything yet - and oh, what locations: this is how it was always supposed to look.

Highly recommended.
