Jane Eyre with William Hurt as Rochester sounds dicey enough, but the last thing you expect from Zeffirelli's latest is a Jane without juice.

The passionate tale of forbidden secrets! This Movie totally stole my Heart. Very intense and a great Love Story.
It is based upon a book but I m glad that they are so Kind to make the Movies
Shadows are just as important as the light.

Whoa, way to take a feminist classic and make it as humanly boring and awkward as possible.
