So for my birthday the boy and I went to see Jane Eyre. I'd been anticipating it for a while after seeing the lovely film posters for it. I was excited to see a Brontë classic being adapted once again for the screen- I am so in love with Wuthering Heights, written by Emily Brontë and wished for it to be as beautiful and as captivating.

Charlotte Brontë's classic is timeless, the grand rooms of Thornfield in all their glory and austerity and the beauty of the pastel rose gardens, the early morning sunlight catching the intricate lace that adorn the windows and the delicate embroidered dresses gently sweep the polished floors. Its themes of love, religion, morality are still of consequence today, but here we see the struggle of one girl's journey through life as she tries to escape the tangled clutches of her evil Aunt and the religious infused school she attends which punishes her for just being herself and then her eventual arrival into adulthood where she

Jane is captured so beautifully by Mia Wasikowska- gentle, graceful, intelligent and intriguing. Her effortless charms soon intrigue the austere Mr Rochester (wonderfully portrayed by Michael Fassbender), owner of Thornfield and they become entangled in a will-they/won't-they? love story. 

I urge you to go and see it, it is such a gorgeous piece of cinema. Fans of Wasikowska and Fassbender will not be disappointed
