    Default Has Anyone Seen the new "Jane Eyre" movie? UPDATE: Saw it Saturday

    I've loved the novel since I first read it in high school. Have you seen the new movie? How is it?

    Thanks,
    Karen

    No but I saw the trailer in the theater this past Sunday (saw Adjustment Bureau - quite good) and it looked very interesting. I've never read the book so I'm interested - quite a good teaser.

    No, but saw the trailer online and miffed it will have such limited showings, none near me The trailer looked good.

    I was just lamenting the other day that this movie isn't playing anywhere near me. But someone told me the limited viewings are just temporary, that it'll be coming to more theatres at a later date. I've no idea if that's correct or not but one can hope.

    I just re-read the novel. I've been watching the trailer and following on facebook, but it doesn't seem to be showing near me, either. I don't understand the reason for the limited showings. I really want to see it.

    I don't get it, either. I know it is playing in New York, but I cannot find it anywhere else.

    It finally came to theater about 30 minutes from me, so I took the family to see it Saturday night.

    It was very good, although the movie focused more on Jane's feelings and emotions more than other interpretations I have seen. It did not have as much Gothic spookiness as the novel, and some scenes I thought were essential were missing.

    The acting was very good, and, of course the shots of the Moors are always wonderful.
