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.

... suffice to say that this is a gorgeous, haunting adaptation of the classic novel.

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.

The otherwise beautiful and buoyant Mia Wasikowska is amazing as the plain Jane who glows with the fire of intelligence and a sense of self-worth that the most soul-crushing abuse can't smother.

A visually beautiful, big-budget rendering of a timeless classic, Jane Eyre is certainly eye candy for fans of the gothic love story.

Duttiful, for the most part adequate and, as far as I can see, it has no compelling reason to exist
May 3, 2013
A rather anemic version of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel, Focus Film and BBC's Jane Eyre favors atmosphere over strong narrative.

Pretty as a postcard -- a postcard of a dark grey, gloomy, windswept moor

Thanks to this beautifully crafted treatment, newcomers and veterans will learn something about the past and more than likely a few things (wanted or not) about themselves.

December 13, 2011
Screenwriter Moira Buffini sticks pretty closely to the novel, and director Cary Fukunaga conjures a drab tone that nicely sets off the characters' violent but rigidly controlled passions.
December 6, 2011
The best adaptation of a 19th Century novel, with all the grandiose production design and fussy costumes thereby implied, since Pride & Prejudice all the way back in 2005, if not longer.

If Fukunaga and screenplay author Moira Buffini had any new ideas or insight to bring to the well-worn source material, they didn't bother putting it on screen.

The direction by Cary Fukunaga is real by-the-numbers rote.

( ... ) a welcome change from Horrible Bosses etc ( ... ) in an age of instant gratification, lessons about the value of solitude for long term benefit still ring true.

As Jane Eyre proves, you still can't beat a good story.

What is surprising is how vigorous and alive it feels.

Wasikowska gives Jane such intensity and intelligence that her relationship with Rochester feels absolutely right and not, for a change, wish-fulfilment fantasy.
