One of the things I love the most when travelling is to discover places where writers were born, or where some characters lived. Soy una friki de la literatura, lo confieso.
It would stand to reason that Jane Eyre would be one of my favorite movies, but so far, this has not been the case. Something about the translation between page and screen loses what I love best from the story. And yet, there are numerous attempts at Jane Eyre movies.
This definitive ranking of Jane Eyre adaptations will help you avoid the worst offenders, at least.
There have been over 50 TV or movie version of Jane Eyre leading back to ! Not a Jane Eyre movie.
The casting is rather strange, Rochester is the right age and amount of grumpy, but Jane is older than usually cast. While I like the attempt to somewhat match the characters in age, Jane was meant to be much younger than Rochester.
All in all, this version is unremarkable in a sea of Jane Eyre adaptations. Rochester is appropriately creepy. It definitely makes you wonder why Jane would be attracted to such a terrible person which I wondered when reading the book as well.
Everyone loves staring off into space and talking in this rendition. The movie tapes were lost, and so, we cannot watch this version for evaluation. However, judging by this still shot, Mr. Rochester was heavy-handed and Jane was yielding and mild.
The movie was likely over-the-top in drama and had gothic flair, as that was fairly popular in silent movies.
Rochester is quite another story. This Rochester is robust, young, and even bouncy. A strange combination that seems unlikely to meld well with the Jane presented in the story. This rendition of the story is definitely romance-focused.
All of the main elements are there, but every element is applied with a heavy hand. The entire movie is overdone. I especially dislike that Mr. Rochester is blonde in this movie.
This movie is depressing. This Jane seems like she will drop dead of depression any moment, taking the rest of the cast with her. There is no humor and absolutely no life in this story.
