Reviews

J. R. Jones Chicago Reader | December 13, 2011

Screenwriter Moira Buffini sticks pretty closely to the novel, and director Cary Fukunaga conjures a drab tone that nicely sets off the characters' violent but rigidly controlled passions.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | April 01, 2011

Pretty as a postcard, it's also a calling card picture and one that reminds us that women other than Jane Austen wrote timeless, rich tales of romance in an age when women were little more than property.

Tom Long Detroit News | March 25, 2011

Somehow Wasikowska makes it all seem much more personal, more real. With her stark, starched dresses and blunt, elastic face, she draws you in, making both Jane's pain and incredible resolve tangible.

Connie Ogle Miami Herald | March 24, 2011

An atmospheric, absorbing version of the classic romance between an abandoned, plucky orphan and a wealthy, mysterious older man with a seriously Gothic secret.

Colin Covert Minneapolis Star Tribune | March 24, 2011

There is not a drab image or a middling performance in the piece. The freewheeling adaptation drops needless scenes and spurs the story ahead with galloping momentum.

Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer | March 24, 2011

By opening their movie with the mature Jane, the filmmakers forge an emotional bond between her and the audience.

Karen D'Souza San Jose Mercury News | March 24, 2011

True aficionados will doubtless wish the film etched every aspect of the Bronte experience but that's a quibble in light of the movie's intoxicating charms. It's impossible not to fall in love with this Jane.
