Rochester




I have never been a fan of the Brontes - I find their novels too dark and moody. I appreciate their art but I never actively reread their novels (unlike Austen or Montgomery).  And I never really enjoy movies made based on their novels. Until now. They remade Jane Eyre, starring Mia Wasikowska as Jane and the ruggedly handsome Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester.  Check out their electric chemistry in the clip above. I have read a few articles on this movie and I think the director used a different kind of treatment that I am excited to see. And of course, to see Fassbender smoulder as Rochester.

Trailer is here.

  1. I agree. I've never been really into the Brontes but the new movie looks really good!

  2. I actually thought of you after I saw this on Apple Trailers the other day. It's crazy--they stayed so true to the text and yet it works. I can't wait to see this!

    How's DC treating you, sweetie?
