Jane Eyre (2011)
Films of this book have always been good
Because I adored the book I've found all film versions of this story to be enjoyable, though I think I enjoyed the 2006 TV mini-series best. But maybe that was just because they drew it out in four separate episodes; it's such an engrossing story. These actors were quite good, with Mia Wasikowska's eyes and face being a perfect canvas for Jane's emotions and Michael Fassbender playing a fine Rochester. My one criticism would be that, rather than telling the story chronologically as is done in the book, and in all other filmed versions I've seen, here they chose to jump around in time, even starting the film in the middle. Maybe this is what led to their leaving out Jane staying on at Lowood and becoming a teacher (though they referred to this they didn't show it, which was disappointing). And they didn't show how her young friend at school contracted her illness, either. Still, a very good two hours and I do recommend it.
This is absolutely the best historical coverage of 9/11 I've seen
There are plenty of news specials on this week, since today's the 10th anniversary of the event, but after taking a look at a lot of them I have to say that this 2008 documentary (made by The History Channel, I believe - ?) is the very best there is. It has no commercials, is in chronological order of what occurred and there is NO NARRATION, which allows you to re-live the entire thing as if it's happening again. Not that this is something anyone actually wants to do ... but, if you're looking for the best collection of videos explaining exactly what happened that day, this is the one for you. I may even look into purchasing a copy, for a historical reference.
