Eeee!!!!I am sooooo excited for this movie. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is my FAVORITE book.
East of Eden by John Steinback is a close second.
I saw this movie poster last month and started jumping up and down and squealing.
My husband, who isn't much of a reader, asked what Jane Eyre was about. I breathlessly replied, "It's about....EVERYTHING."
I realize that isn't a very good answer, but it is about lots of things : suffering,coming-of-age, mystery and suspense,love, desire....
so really, it is about "everything."
The sneak peeks I have gotten of the movie seem to do justice to the book well. The movie has enthusiastic reviews with it's beautiful cinematography, stellar acting, and master storytelling.
Check out the trailer, go see the movie, and you should probably go read the book as well, if you haven't already.
