He’s helped in no small part by 2 of cinemas brightest talents right now in Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender, who deliver powerhouse performances that draw you in and leave you stirred and sometimes breathless. And in smaller roles, the ever brilliant and the incomparable , support and quietly add further weight to the drama.
Jane Eyre is one of the great stories, here told afresh with a drive and urgency that you’d hope to find in any modern thriller. ‘s sharp and at times very dryly witty script, allow you into a story about equality and freedom that’s as universal today as it would have been shocking at the time it was written.
