Leonard Maltin: Watch JANE EYRE

Focus Features 09.02.2011

On Huffington Post, film critic Leonard Maltin picked five films to see for the end of the summer. Of course, JANE EYRE - now on DVD - is on his list. What does he say? "Writer Moira Buffini and director Cary Fukunaga bring a fresh eye to Charlotte Bront"e's classic novel. Even better, Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender are perfectly cast as the much-abused Jane and the tortured Mr. Rochester. Judi Dench brings a welcome touch of humor to the proceedings as a dithery housekeeper in this handsome but admirably restrained period piece."
