Jane Eyre (2011)

Cary Fukunaga directs Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Bell in this interpretation of Charlotte Brontë’s ‘governess adrift in a house of secrets’ classic romance.

A very tactile, handsome sensitive drama. Every element is gorgeous to look at, yet has a real world heft from the set dressing to the human players. Adriano Goldman’s cinematography captures misty trudges and candlelit hauntings with an expert fascination. Both Wasikowska and Fassbender do sterling work, it might not be completely text appropriate but they are fantastic on the eye. A recent high point in British period cinema, this is a potent and sensual adaptation.
