A recent independent film inspired somehow by Jane Eyre:
I Am No Bird (2016)
Directed by Scout Tafoya
Written by Michelle Siracusa, Nick Smerkanich and  Scout Tafoya loosely based on Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

Theodora Blasko ... Kate
Cooper McKim ... Brother
Michelle Siracusa ... Jane
Nick Smerkanich ... Rod
Duration: 1 hour 16 minutes

The film is a riff on Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, examining the passions that have anchored love stories for centuries
After Jane sleeps with Roderick, the man of her dreams, she's shocked to discover he's been keeping a long term relationship with another woman a secret from her. Suddenly everything about their relationship is a lie and she has no equilibrium. How could he do this to her? She sets about investigating his cheating heart by sitting down with him in conversation and refusing to leave until she's satisfied with what he has to say for himself. I Am No Bird is an examination of age old romantic problems in a modern setting.
A critics pick at Chicago Filmmakers and New Filmmakers New York, I Am No Bird will stay with you long after its short running time is up.
