Jane Eyre 2011
August 16, 13:50h

An orphan suffers an unhappy childhood before gaining employment, firstly as a teacher and later as a governess to a little girl living at the imposing Thornfield Hall. She falls in love with the owner of the estate, but it is much later that she discovers the terrible secret that he is harbouring.
