Wide Sargasso Sea (2006)
Good, but not as good as Jane Eyre
This adaptation of Jean Rhys's book is very lively, colourful and full of excellent acting. It tells the story of Edward Rochester, before he meets Jane Eyre. He is in the Caribbean, where he falls in love with and gets married to the beautiful young Antoinette. But he discovers the dark secret of her past, and slowly becomes wary of her emotions. The part of Rochester was very well acted by Rafe Spall, though not as well as Toby Stephens in the recent BBC dramatisation of Jane Eyre. Thought some parts didn't seem completely true to Bronte's Jane Eyre, the outline of the "woman in the attic" story is here and proves a useful prologue to the main story.
