Jane Eyre (2011) 
Jane Eyre
3/4 stars

The classic 1847 novel jumps off the screen in this delightful version that is at once scary and sweet. Told in flashback form, this "Jane Eyre" follows the orphan's travails as, despised by her aunt and eventually sent off to a charity girl's school, she puts up with horrible conditions, finally leaving to procure a job as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. But complications arise as she falls in love with him, only to be devastated when their marriage is prevented by a horrible secret, forcing her to take her future into her own hands and come to terms with her own past. This is a wonderful new interpretation of Charlotte Bronte's classic that alters the novel's structure but not the emotional impact of the characters or the scenarios. Mia Wasikowska is a perfect Jane Eyre -- not overly pretty but still striking in her looks and demeanor; she pulls you into her character as you feel her pain and discomfort -- and stoicness. And Michael Fassbender scores well as the troubled Rochester. An auspicious outing for director Cary Fukunaga. If you thought there were already two many "Jane Eyres" out there, you'd be wrong.
