Jane Eyre (2011) 
New isn't always better
2/4 stars

I started my Jane Eyre endeavor a couple months ago, when I was urged to watch the Orson Welles version. I absolutely fell in love with it. I really enjoyed the story and remembered another Jane Eyre had come out recently, so I figured, what the heck?! Michael Fassbender-- sign me up!
My take on this one is that it's probably a little truer to the novel as there was a storyline in this film that isn't in the Orson Welles version. I've never read the book, so don't quote me on that.
Mia Wasikowska was a great Jane Eyre. Michael Fassbender was a great Edward Rochester. Individually. The problem for me was that these two had zero chemistry. And that really put a damper on things. I found the movie to be a bit boring. The scenery was lovely. The performances were excellent. There was just something missing. I was never really enthralled or enthused, probably because the leads weren't, either. There was no real sense of urgency or longing.
Would I watch it again? Maybe, if it was on tv and I was flicking around. But I can't say I'd go out of my way to see it again.
