Charlotte Brontë's much-filmed 1847 novel is reinvigorated for a new generation in this brooding period romance. Beautifully shot, the feature drips with gothic atmosphere, as 19th-century governess Jane Eyre recalls the turbulent events that made her suddenly flee her post at spooky Thornfield Hall. It's a dark journey that brings back memories of a childhood filled with misery, before focussing on the crux of Jane's current distress: her intense relationship with her mysterious Thornfield boss, Edward Rochester. Unpredictable yet fascinating, the older man gradually steals the teen’s heart - only for a terrible, long-hidden secret to rip it apart. With tragedy once again dominating her life, can Jane ever find real happiness, or will the ghosts of the past haunt her eternally?
