Jane Eyre 2011

How pumped an I? While the most recent version is outstandingly close to the book, I am interested to see a big scene, big budget, big star rendition.

Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) is our home girl Jane Eyre.
Judy Dench (Pride & Prejudice among many others) is to play the house keeping Mrs. Fairfax.
Sally Hawkins (Persuasion) will be the horrid Aunt Reed.
Imogene Poots, yes thats her real name, (Miss Austen Regrets) complicates true love as Blanch Ingram.
Tamzin Merchant (Pride & Prejudice) will be Mary Rivers.
Jayne Wisener (Sweeney Todd) is the maid Bessie.
Simon McBurney (Harry Potter, The Duchess) brings oppression as Mr. Brocklehurst.

Now I know some of these are name and titles you have never heard of but I STRONGLY encourage you watch them!


  1. 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. :)

  2. Based on what I've read I have a theory that the movie will start with Jane running away from Thornfield and progress to her time with the Rivers and all the events that lead up to it will been seen as flashbacks. We'll see soon tho!
