Yahoo! Entertainment shares the 'freedom in though' clip from Emily and Digital Trends lists Jane Eyre 2011 among '7 overlooked modern movies you should watch'.
Jane Eyre (2011)
Mr. Rochester and Jane about to kiss in Jane Eyre.
Charlotte Brontë’s 1847 classic Jane Eyre has received multiple adaptations. However, the definitive one might be Cary Joji Fukunaga’s 2011 version starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender in the roles they were born to play. The film is a faithful adaptation of the novel, which chronicles the life of its titular heroine and her eventual relationship with the stern Mr. Rochester.
Framed by Fukunaga’s confident eye and driven by Wasikowska and Fassbender’s powerful performances, Jane Eyre is the perfect mix of melancholy and bliss. The film is quiet and introspective, presenting an elegant adaptation that is equal parts controlled and passionate, much like its now-iconic heroine. Jane Eyre came out during the boom of the period adaptations of the 2010s and got lost in the noise. However, it’s leagues above its fellow adaptations, with lush production values, top-notch performances, and a majestic score that cements Dario Marianelli as the master of period music.

48 Hills reviews Cécile McLorin Salvant's album Ghost Song.
Unquiet Grave: “This is a ghost telling the living to live! I wanted to end the album on this note because it felt like this is one of the greatest lessons loss, distance or absence of any kind has to teach us. Yes we take things for granted and always will, and it is a practice to return to being present, and feeling gratitude.”
The order of songs on the new album, especially upon multiple listenings, leaves the impression of a song cycle that begins and ends on similar, if not identical planes. Final track “Unquiet Grave” holds references to the opening track, a brilliant cover of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights, and on Dead Poplar, upon which Salvant layers a love letter stretched wide with emotion that Alfred Stieglitz wrote to Georgia O’Keeffe.
“Thank you for noticing the circle,” she says, when I mention the circularity. “Cycles and patterns are so fundamental to the way we live. I wanted this feeling of returning in the album.” (Lou Fancher)
Huffington Post (Spain) tells about a note found in an old copy of Wuthering Heights.
