Audience Reviews for Jane Eyre

Baahhh So Bad! I dont know I just really did NOT like this version AT ALL. Iit was most do to the two leads. Samatha Morton and Caran Hinds...They just did not mesh well in my oppion and did not to a very good job of acting...Skip this one unless you are very very bored.

[font=Century Gothic]"Jane Eyre" starts out with the title character as a girl being sent to a downscale school by her cruel relations for the crime of being strong willed. Despite a typhus epidemic and the death of her only friend, Jane Eyre(Samantha Morton) thrives there and is eventually promoted to teacher. Seeking to see more of the world than a grubby little school, she places an advertisement seeking employment which is answered by Mrs. Fairfax(Gemma Jones) to be a governess to Adele, ward of the mysterious Edward Rochester(Ciaran Hinds) at Thornfield Hall.[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]The only other version of "Jane Eyre" that I have seen was the 1944 version starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine(not counting the plot points that were recalled in the wonderful novel, "The Eyre Affair" by Jasper Fforde) but this made for television version does seem rather pedestrian with some lapses in acting. Gemma Jones does a fine job but Ciaran Hinds does seem surprisingly somewhat miscast. But Samantha Morton singlehandedly raises the film to respectability.[/font]

The acting was terrible by Ciarán Hinds but Samantha Morton pulled the movie together. She was INCREDIBLE! The whole movie I couldn't understand how she could love him; he was creepy and evil.

Jane Eyre was a movie which I would like to watch again. It was a great novel and filmed beautifully. I liked the characters, Samantha Morton was the perfect Jane, she was reserved but nice. Ciaran Hinds brought the character of Mr. Rochester alive. He was a stiff man in the beginning but then surprised me when he turned to be a passionate man. These kinds of movies I love to watch, it just kept me interesting in watching. Beautiful movie, I really love it.
