Wah! I want to go with you, too!

I think I might like this Jane. Rochester, though, seems a little squatty. Don't think I can love him.

Oh, I want to come too!

This trailer really plays up the Gothic elements, doesn't it? I wonder how that bears out in the actual movie.

I dunno -- I think Rochester's okay...

I do like how it seems they've finally managed to make Jane "plain" in a believable fashion. The actress herself isn't ugly at all, but of course that hairstyle flatters very few people. I'd feel like a freak with my hair parted in the middle and smoothed flat.

Friends, weigh in on the best Jane Eyre movie adaptations. I feel a binge coming on. I really liked the one with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens (from the post below) but I'm open to suggestions.

I was at the library today to borrow a Jane Eyre movie and couldn't find a SINGLE ONE! Shouldn't library video/DVD collections be full of literary adaptations, not stupid comedies? Makes me miss our fantastic video store back in Norfolk - crazy organization by director, theme, genre, location, star - all over the place, but the owners knew where everything was.

I want to see this version: http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi279446809/. The trailer is not to miss!!!

Emily, that's awesome. I don't know how much like the book it will seem, but hey! Period piece! And who doesn't like Orson Welles?
