The new(ish) Jane Eyre movie is awesome.

I saw the 2011 Jane Eyre movie with Emily about a week ago! It was very good. contained many awkward times that made me and Emily laugh a lot. I mean, they weren't out-of-place awkward moments, they were totally accurate. But still just super funny to us. Like, there is this one scene where Rochester is wearing really tight pants (aka BRITCHES) and he is standing kinda sassy and...oh man, hahaha. And I literally went "GRAHHH!" and cackled wildly at the part where he tried to choke a bitch, aka actually a dude. SO AWESOME.

Really, though, it was an excellent adaptation. Which it better be because otherwise I'd be pissed, since Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books OF ALL TIME. Along with The Count of Monte Cristo, the Harry Potter books (obv) and the Wheel of Time series. SUDDENLY, A MOVIE PICSPAM OUT OF NOWHERE!!

Mia Wasikowska as the titular heroine.

Michael Fassbender as Edward Fairfax Rochester

Dame Judi Dench (!!) as Mrs. Alice Fairfax

Some ladies as Mary (L) and Diana Rivers

Some dude with nasty mutton chops as St. John Rivers

Some lady with huge sleeves as Mrs. Reed

Lady with cool dress but questionable hair as Blanche Ingram


Aw man, I wanna live at Thornfield.


All in all, I would certainly recommend this movie, especially to people who like the novel. It is quite faithful to the book, although leaving out some parts, and chronologically organized in a really interesting way, features all-around great acting, and the cinematography/visuals are awesome. Plus there are some intentionally+unintentionally hilarious parts. Aw jyeahh.
