Jane Eyre Movie Trailer


And in the spirit of the Jane giveaway we've got going on, here is the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Jane Eyre. It stars Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender and is set to release March 11th here in the U.S. I think it looks perfectly awesome and I'm so excited I can hardly wait. They've certainly adapted this story a number of times over the years and people tend to have definite opinions about their favorite version. Me, I get a little thrill with every one as it's just one of my favorite stories ever. So, who's going to go see it?

  1. So I was about to complain about how we don't need ANOTHER version, but that looks really, really good. :) The actress playing Jane seems excellent.

    My main problem with movie versions of JE are that they are too short. You really lose stuff when it's all condensed into a couple of hours.

    My favourite version is still the old BBC adaptation - a mini-series - from at least 25 years ago. Timothy Dalton as Rochester (*swoon*) and Zelah Clarke as Jane. To this day, I think she's the best Jane ever. God, I'm really showing my age here. I saw it when it was first on TV, I was about 10... Heh. ;)

    Thanks for sharing. Also, if you're interested in seeing Dalton and Clarke, here's a clip. Listen to the lovely music!

  2. I can't wait for this! I saw the PBS/BBC version they did a few years ago and it was okay, but I think Fassbender is going to be a great Rochester. Okay, maybe he's a little too good-looking but I'm not complaining!

  3. I saw this trailer last night and was all, "Oooh, I'm in!" I love Jane Eyre so much as a story. And I do love Mia Wasikowska. She's a really talented actress. Not to mention my deep and abiding love of costume drama.

    I'm SO in!

  7. I'm not sure how I feel about the actor playing Mr. Rochester but Mia looks like she'll pull of Jane Eyre gracefully. She certainly has that direct stare that Mr. Rochester likes, lol.

    I watched the trailer earlier today and I think it looks very interesting. I'm definitely going to see it. You know I'm a big fan of the most recent Masterpiece Theatre version. I loved Toby Stephens as Rochester and thought Ruth Wilson was a perfect Jane.

    This version looks like it's a bit more spooky than the others...it look's good, but I think the Masterpiece version is going to be hard to beat.

  13. Oh.Em.Gee. They are making a Jane Eyre movie?! I liked the old one with William Hurt but I practically squeed out loud when I saw this trailer.

  14. Looks so good! Just like I imagined everything when I read the book. Except Mr, Rochester was uglier in my head haha

  18. Not sure I liked the actress in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, but I think she could be a better Jane than Alice. Looking forward to it.

  21. So excited to see "Jane Eyre" return to the big screen! I think that Mia Wasikowska will make a good Jane. Thanks for posting this trailer!

  22. The Jane Eyre 2006 DVD is my favorite adaptation. Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens was spectacular in that version. It would be hard topping that but I'm looking forward to watching the 2011 film nonetheless. :)

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

My Year of Georgette Heyer | Book the First: The Convenient Marriage

This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I believe I am, in fact, upon the brink of accomplishing something that I have been meaning to do for years. I want you all to be the first to know that I just read my first very Georgette Heyer. That's right. I actually did it. After years of promising myself and countless others (many of you) that I would do it, I finally managed it! And I can tell that I'm about to dive headlong into a full-fledged binge.

After consulting all of your past comments on which Heyers are your favorites and why (and after some serious counsel from Beth and a well-timed trip to our local Barnes & Noble), I chose to start with The Convenient Marriage. I had no idea it would turn out to contain, without question, one of my favorite proposal scenes ever. The kind of proposal scene that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong after it. It takes place very early on, and it made me laugh and sigh repeatedly with delight. I know I will be …

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…
