Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre
Plain, proper Jane Eyre, as played by Samantha Morton (In America), survives a troubled childhood to become governess at Thornfield Hall. But the place is haunted by secrets, which complicate Jane's growing passion for her mysterious employer, Mr. Rochester, as played by Ciaran Hinds, (Game of Thrones). Of course, the conundrum of the mad woman in the attic, Mrs. Rochester, has been dismaying feminists for nearly two centuries now.

Collection includes Emma, Jane Eyre, The Woman in White, The Lady's Not for Burning, and The Death of the Heart. With Kate Beckinsale, Mark Strong, Samantha Morton, Ciarán Hinds, Kenneth Branagh, Tara Fitzgerald, and Andrew Lincoln. 5 movies, 8 ¾ hrs, 5 DVDs, SDH.
