Charlotte Brontë’s most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester.
The loneliness and cruelty of Jane’s childhood strengthens her natural independence and spirit, which prove invaluable when she takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Ever since its publication in 1847, Jane Eyre has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman's quest for self-respect.

Jane Eyre reminds me of Jane Austen characters, strong, independent and passionate women, ahead of their time. Loved it!
Screenplay was hidden gem
Jane Eyre is my all time favorite book and I was thrilled to get it on my iPod. This movie tie-in w the screenplay was so nice to read the original writing for the 2011 adaptation. I love the new movie and Moira Buffini's screenplay was wonderfully imaginative and did justice to the book. Loved it!
