Goofs

In the establishing long shoot of the scene, "An Ernest Proposal," Rochester is standing in the shade and Jane is walking from the sun into the shaded area. When the dialog begins, although they've maintained their positions, Jane is now standing in the shade and Rochester is standing in the sun. This is probably due to the dialog being filmed at a different time. See more »

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.
Jane Eyre: And you've never been without ...

A stunning version with stunning performances
7 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I first read Jane Eyre when I was 9 years old - a very tatty edition that belonged to my Grandmother - and from that moment on I was hooked. I've read it several times since then and Rochester was my first literary hero : I fell in love with him then and continue to do so with each reading/viewing.

Like thousands of others, I fell completely under the spell of this version - and was bewitched by the performances from the two leads. In particular the portrayal of Rochester from the gorgeous Toby Stephens. He brought Rochester to life. Only a heart of stone could fail to have been moved by his performance. This was a classic portrayal and one which will not be forgotten.

The definitive Rochester? Absolutely The definitive Jane Eyre? For sure Watch it and weep - unless you really do have a heart of stone.
