Adaptation of the classic novel by Charlotte Bronte in which a young governess falls in love with her master. Jane Eyre (Mia Wasikowska) emerges from a troubled childhood to take on the position of governess at Thornfield Hall. Thornfield is owned by the passionate and impulsive Rochester (Michael Fassbender), who pays Jane unusual attention for someone below his station. The pair quickly fall in love and set their heart on marriage, but a dark secret from Rochester's past threatens to destroy their happiness. Directed by Cary Fukunaga and also starring Judi Dench as the housekeeper, Mrs Fairfax, this latest re-telling of Bronte's popular story makes use of modern cinematic techniques while remaining true to the novel's intent.
