Charlotte Bronte's Gothic romance gets the BBC and Masterpiece Theater treatment in this two-part miniseries. Ruth Wilson plays the title role, one of the most beloved characters in classic fiction, thanks to her independence and intelligence. After a difficult childhood, Jane finds work as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There she meets and falls in love with its mysterious owner, Edward Rochester (Toby Stephens), though things aren't as simple as they seem. Prior to this role, Stephens may have been most recognizable for playing a Bond villain in DIE ANOTHER DAY. But he turns in a performance here that may place him next to Colin Firth's legendary Mr. Darcy in the hearts of viewers.

  • Film and Book title are exactly alike.
    Verified Purchase

    This video is an accurate film of the book by Charlotte Bronte. While watching the film you have a clear view of what the author is writing about and it follows the true story line. In the film you get a clear representation of this time in English history and the true romance behind her characters.

  • Nothing better
    Verified Purchase

    I am an avid Jane Eyre fan. And while this movie is not perfectly loyal to every nuance of the book, it is BY FAR the BEST film adaptation of the novel out there. Trust me, I've seen every single one. I could not praise this movie enough! A+++++!

    Verified Purchase

    I LOVE this movie! It is the best Jane Eyre movie out there, and it is almost 4 hours long, so it is very much like the book. I have seen other movies of Jane Eyre, and they are VERY disappointing. The book and this movie are very much the same, which is not always the case. This is definitely one that you will want to have for your collection for a long time!

  • A Fabulous Jane
    Verified Purchase

    Ruth Wilson is the key to this Jane Eyre. She manages to convey Jane's passion, her joy in unexpected love, and her devastation at heartbreak, while also being a restrained and correct governess. The chemistry between her and Toby Stephens works, too. (Although he isn't my ideal Rochester.) St. John Rivers and Jane's whole time away from Thornfield are another big success. My biggest criticism is the overblown horror movie aspect of the secret at Thornfield Hall. And really, if you were trying to hide someone in the North Tower, would you let them fly a big red flag out the window? But that's a minor criticism of a wonderful achievement. I'll be watching this movie often, and I recommend it wholeheartedly to other Jane Eyre fans, or anyone who appreciates complex, dramatic romance.

  • Jane Eyre DVD a Masterpiece!
    Verified Purchase

    Bought this after looking at all the possible film versions of the classic. Recently read it w/ a book group and LOVED it so really wanted to see what was done on film. Didn't want a "rush job" condensed into an hour and a1/2. Remembered seeing bits of the Orson Welles black and white movie years ago, and wasn't disappointed with this 2 disc DVD set. Watched it w/ my 16 year-old daughter. She has not yet read the book, but was hooked on it, and couldn't wait to finish the 2d half!
