During the scene where Mrs. Fairfax, Adele and Jane are eating while Mr. Rochester is shooting birds, Cary Fukunaga would play music in ear pieces that the actors wore to make them react to the gun-shots. At one point he forgot that Romy Settbon Moore was on set and played a song with explicit language, causing Romy's Mother to scowl at him. See more »
When Jane was tutoring Adele and showing her the extent of the British Empire around the globe she included Australia but Australia did not exist then as such. Australia was then merely a collection of separate independent colonies which did not come together to form Australia until another 50years. See more »
[after Jane and Mr. Rochester have put out a fire that was set to his bed]
Say nothing about this. You are no talking fool.
I'll account for the state of affairs. Say nothing.
Is that how you would leave me? Jane, fire is a horrible death. You've saved my life. Don't walk past me as if we were strangers.
What am I to do, then?
[Rochester offers his hand, which she hesitates before taking. He covers her hand with his and draws closer]

I read the reviews of this film a few days before it was released, and one critic said it was the best JE adaptation she had ever seen. Well, then. I had high expectations.
WOW. It totally surpassed my expectations.
I'm a huge fan of the book, so I was a bit unsure of this film (before I saw it, of course) because it may have altered some main details. Not true. Yes, some parts were altered, but not altered so much that it was a fallacy. Not in any way were the changes a fallacy. The changes were minor.
The acting is wonderful, you can really sense the chemistry between Wasikowska's Jane and Fassbender's Rochester. It's well written, and the screen-writer has added in some quirky little moments that made everyone in my theatre laugh out loud.
In other words, I loved this movie. It was a beautiful film, and it was well worth the two hour car ride to see it. I can't wait for the DVD.
