I am a HUGE Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte fan! Ever since reading this book as a child, I loved it. I believe it was my first love story that I have ever read. I didn't understand in fullness the darkness that plagued Mr. Rochester but I was enamored by this story.
The director,Fukunaga, had a great vision for this movie. He gave it a sophistication and a elegance to this film. I really enjoyed it. Mia Waskikowska: I am amazed by her maturity in her acting. She is choosing films that stretch her. (Kids are All Right, ALice in Wonderland, The Girl with a Dragon Tatoo) Michael Fassbender received nominations and even won awards for his depiction of Mr. Rochester. Waskikowska nominated but didn't win. They were not nominated for an oscar nor was Fukunaga nominated for best director but what do I know.
Love this film!!!
