Synopsis Fukunaga is an intense, visceral filmmaker with a love for melodramatic situations....One of the shrewd choices Fukunaga has made is to emphasize the natural gothic aspects of the story.[W]ith handsome cinematic flourishes and an intriguing storytelling approach. The talented cast, spectacular cinematography and spot-on production design is guided by the sure hand of director Cary Joji Fukunaga.This JANE EYRE, energetically directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a smart, trim script by Moira Buffini, is a splendid example of how to tackle the daunting duty of turning a beloved work of classic literature into a movie.3.5 stars out of 5 -- [T]horoughly cinematic....Judging by the instinctive fluidity with which he tells the story, it's obvious Fukunaga has found his place behind the camera...3 stars out of 4 -- [Fukunaga] is a filmmaker to watch. He has reanimated a classic for a new generation, letting JANE EYRE resonate with terror and tenderness.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A]tmospheric....Here Judi Dench's contribution is significant...[Wasikowska] doesn't just sent out vibes of awareness -- she's gorgeously grave. She makes Jane's passive, shrinking-violet moments percolate with hidden life.3 stars out of 5 -- As Rochester, Fassbender again shows he's one of his generation's most virile, compelling leading men..Fukunaga is largely faithful to his source material....Mia Wasikowska excels as Jane.3 stars out of 5 -- Cary Fukunaga's foray into Bronte country is probing and intelligent....Mia Wasikowska impresses as Jane Eyre...Charlotte Brontë's classic romance is revived once again with this Ruby Films production directed by Cary Fukunaga (SIN NOMBRE) and adapted by screenwriter Moira Buffini. Raised by her aunt Sarah (Sally Hawkins) after her parents die of typhus, young Jane Eyre (Amelia Clarkson) is later shipped off to a stark boarding school as the result of her perceived insolence, and suffers greatly at the hands of the cold, unusually strict administration. Upon turning 18 and completing her education, Jane (Mia Wasikowska) finds work as a governess for Adèle Varens (Romy Settbon Moore), the ward of Edward Fairfax Rochester (Michael Fassbender), master of Thornfield Hall. It doesn't take long for the young Adèle to warm to Jane, and upon returning home the charming Rochester, too, falls under the spell of his modest yet captivating governess. Later, he ends his courtship with the beautiful Blanche Ingram (Imogen Poots) in favor of proposing to Jane, who excitedly accepts. On what was supposed to be the happiest day of Jane's life, however, a scandalous secret is revealed, and the emotionally shattered governess takes flight. Subsequently taken in by kindly clergyman St. John (Jamie Bell) and his two sisters, Jane begins a new life as a teacher under an assumed name. But her passion for Rochester still burns bright, prompting Jane to make a life-altering decision after learning a crucial secret about her own family.
