As the self-possessed governess Jane, Mia Wasikowska is perfection - relatively plain, the right age (early 20s) and charismatic, while Michael Fassbender's Mr Rochester is all glowering vigour. Pure pleasure.
Because of Jane, generations of young women have been - and will continue to be - reassured that even if they are "poor, obscure, plain, and little," they can still make a happy ending if they are true to themselves.
A film adaptation of a novel, especially one as iconic as Charlotte Brontė's 1847 opus is little like musical medley, or perhaps, an overture for the grander symphonic heft yet to come. It hits all the beats, and that's all there is time for.
The new film version of Jane Eyre isn't all bad, but it's all wrong. . .What's lacking is Jane Eyre itself-Charlotte Brontė's feverish inner world of anguish and fury. Instead, everything is pallid and sedate.
