September 9, 2011
The new Jane Eyre is notably well-made in almost every respect and should you want to watch an adaptation of the story just now, highly recommendable.

Some works of art are inexhaustible, and this is proving one of them.

September 8, 2011
A film which busily ticks off plot points while failing to capture the aching, class-based challenges that presumably formed the backbone of Bronté's book.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 8, 2011
A chaste, yet inescapably sexy love story told with depth and passion.
September 8, 2011
The film is decently acted, well photographed and sumptuously costumed - but dry, drab and a little dull.

September 8, 2011
I doubt anyone's going to fall in love with this version but it's a commendable addition to the canon that does a good job of condensing the story.

Spot on.

Those craving gloomy stairways and thunderclap atmospherics might not come away completely sated, but Fukunaga's delicate artistry leaves it hard to ask for much more.

September 8, 2011
In approaching the material with respect, restraint and simple good taste, Fukunaga has created something strangely revelatory.

September 8, 2011
This adaptation is balanced, crafted, beautifully acted, though for me without the thunderclap and lightning-bolt of passion.

This is no plain Jane.

Wasikowska probably won't win an Oscar because the strength of her performance lies in just how unassuming it is - but she should.

September 7, 2011
Impressively directed, beautifully shot and superbly written, this is a hugely enjoyable, achingly romantic period drama with terrific performances from Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
September 5, 2011
There's no question it's stunningly mounted, and Wasikowska makes a much stronger Jane than Alice, but the romance is overripe and the climax underdone.

September 2, 2011
Following his impressive feature debut, Sin Nombre, director Cary Fukunaga has brought his keen eye and humanistic sensibilities to this oft-told story.
September 2, 2011
The end result is a decent adaptation of a hopelessly uninvolving novel, with the movie's minor success due almost entirely to Fukunaga's striking directorial choices and Wasikowska and Fassbender's magnetic performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 30, 2011
A bold choice of director, striking visuals and a Rochester to rival Orson Welles' ensures this doesn't feel like just one more highbrow period piece or stodgy great-book adap.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 23, 2011
The slow-boiling romance convinces thanks to Wasikowska and Fassbender's unwavering seriousness and commitment to selling the story. [Blu-ray]

August 21, 2011
... this new incarnation embraces the Gothic gloom and lonely isolation of the novel but, like its stoic, strong heroine, never gives in to the darkness.
August 18, 2011
Fukunaga takes his time with Jane Eyre - a rare trait of any book-to-film adaptation - and at no point does it feel like he's simply ticking off the relevant plot points.
