This columnist from Stylist is looking forward to watching To Walk Invisible.
We have been obsessed with the Brontë sisters for as long as we can remember; Emily Brontë famously penned the ground-breaking Wuthering Heights, Charlottë [sic] brought us the phenomenally successful Jane Eyre, and Anne gave us the brutally honest Agnes Grey.
While bookworms are incredibly familiar with the Brontë sisters’ literary exploits, many of us are less aware of the hardships they faced in order to become published authors. But, thankfully, that’s all about to change, thanks to BBC One’s new period drama, To Walk Invisible. (Kayleigh Dray)
There's a poll at the bottom of the article where you can quantify your excitement about the production.

Trendencias (Spain) comments on how they are already obsessed about the production without having even seen it yet.
Lo reconocemos. Nos encantan los libros de las hermanas Brontë, no hay suficientes versiones de Cumbres Borrascosas y Jane Eyre (y más si sale Michael Fassbender en ellas) y nos apasionamos por la época en que vivieron.
Pero también nos fascinan ellas, las escritoras, las mujeres reales que vivieron hace tanto tiempo ya, recluidas en medio del páramo y fueron capaces de escribir historias tan tremendamente pasionales sin apenas haber experimentando nada en la vida.
Durante años nos hemos preguntado cómo serían las tres hermanas en realidad, Charlottë [sic], Emily y Anne. Y ahora, gracias a la BBC, nuestro sueño se va a hacer realidad.

For centuries, writers like Sylvia Plath and Charlotte Brönte [sic] have produced some of the most memorable female characters of literature. In looking closer at their works, it can be seen that several of these characters have served to shed light on the injustices facing women, especially those relating to stereotypes surrounding mental health.  Bertha’s infamous character in Brönte’s novel Jane Eyre provides a vivid example of the plight of female mental illness, graphically portraying a woman confined to an attic and condemned by her own husband to live alone for eternity. Believed to have descended into an incurable madness, Bertha was ignored, left for forgotten and in many ways vilified for her illness, a fact of moral ambiguity that Brönte was likely aware of.

Il était une fois le cinéma (France) The Quiet Man (1952) and claims that,
Le film frappe par la beauté de paysages – filmés en extérieur, et utilisés par Ford de manière très subtile : symboles de la passion des amoureux, ils créent un lyrisme visuel qui rappelle celui, littéraire, des Hauts de Hurlevent de Charlotte Brontë. (Nadia Nasr) (Translation)
Too bad about crediting the wrong sister with it but congrats on the right diaeresis though!
