The Guardian recommends watching Jane Eyre 2011 on BBC One later today.
Jane Eyre 1.50pm, BBC One
Cary Fukunaga’s atmospheric screening of Charlotte Brontë’s gothic romance has Mia Wasikowska as an oppressed Jane, sent to live at the forbidding manor of Michael Fassbender’s Rochester, where Judi Dench’s housekeeper Mrs Fairfax holds sway. The moors are bleak and choked with repressed longings. (Paul Howlett)
De Volkskrant (Netherlands) recommends it too.
Jane Eyre
BBC 1, 14.50 uur [CET]
(Drama, Cary Joji Fukunaga, 2011) Beeldschoon, maar gesloten en een toonbeeld van zelfbeheersing. Zo zet Mia Wasikowska Jane Eyre neer. De onderhuids broeiende passie is voelbaar, precies zoals het hoort in een klassieke bewerking van Charlotte Brontës roman. Al nemen Cary Joji Fukunaga (later doorgebroken met True Detective, nu regisseur van de aankomende Bondfilm No Time to Die) en scenarist Moira Buffini de chronologische structuur van het boek op de schop met een effectieve flashbackconstructie, waarbij de meeste tijd is ingeruimd voor de intense relatie tussen Eyre en landheer Rochester (Michael Fassbender). (Berend Jan Bockting and Jorrit Van Broekhoven) (Translation)
Esquire reviews the forthcoming The Lying Life of Adults by Elena Ferrante.
Like all adolescent protagonists from Jane Eyre to Adrian Mole, Giovanna is driven by a need to give herself, bodily, to someone, though she can’t quite decide who. (Miranda Collinge)
According to The New Indian Express this is what happens at the end of Wuthering Heights:
In the novel Wuthering Heights, lover boy is caught talking to his beloved’s ghost, for she is already deceased at the story’s start. The literary couple is conscious of their destiny from the moment they meet. Walking into the sunset like good sports, their eyes meet the author’s just before they tip over. To misquote Tennyson, theirs not to reason why, theirs just to do and die. (Shinie Antony)
