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.

Luminous in The Kids are All Right and Alice in Wonderland, Wasikowska makes drab seem rad in director Cary Fukunaga's insightful rendering of Brontė's gothic love story, a new classic version of this oft-told tale.
