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.
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.

It's really strange, this whole weird gothic romance going on and then you turn in into the most kind of distanced, blasé material imaginable.
March 7, 2011
The umpteenth take on Brontė's novel takes a unique gothic approach, but the results are grim at times and dull at others.

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

It's not a failure, it's just not a revelation worthy of a revisit.

(The movie) lacks the larger-than-life emotional grandeur that the gothic romance is supposed to elicit.

Multiple men demonstrate extreme, sudden affection for Jane. This, apparently, is what happens when there are only two women in a village and one is Judi Dench.

March 9, 2011
A spare, visually foreboding and well acted adaptation of one the mainstays of high school reading lists that nonetheless struggles to consistently or cathartically dramatically connect.

Admirable attempt - but this modernist, non-linear interpretation totally lacks a formidable leading man.

March 12, 2011
Some wonderful parts in the novel are crudely truncated; other, oft-omitted material is added without adding very much.
March 17, 2011
Careful, respectful and even enjoyable, and yet dry, singularly humorless and played without the lavishness of spirit that makes sense of Gothic melodrama.

If the motion-picture industry had existed in 1847, the year Charlotte Brontė's novel appeared, it might have produced an adaptation much like this one.

Duttiful, for the most part adequate and, as far as I can see, it has no compelling reason to exist
November 24, 2011
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.

Feels strikingly unnecessary. Why watch the same tale spun for a tenth time when you could be watching one of the previous nine?

What is the one image you remember from reading Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre? Got it? Well, it's missing from this latest adaptation.

The sad fact is, Charlotte Brontė's Jane Eyre just doesn't make for appealing cinema.

A blueprint for sexual harassment in the workplace in that time period.
