Posted 1 July, 2011 by Lianne in Entertainment / 0 Comments

After a bleak childhood, Jane Eyre goes out into the world to become a governess. As she lives happily in her new position at Thornfield Hall, she meets the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house, Mr. Rochester. Jane and her employer grow close in friendship and she soon finds herself falling in love with him. Happiness seems to have found Jane at last, but could Mr. Rochester’s terrible secret be about to destroy it forever?

I absolutely loved the 2006 version with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens so I wasn’t entirely sure about this movie, especially as there are a number of other Bronte books that haven’t been adapted yet. But then I saw the trailer and thought that there was potential for this movie. Spoilers ahead!
