Sneak Peek: Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë
November 10th, 2010
Jane Eyre, the classic novel by Charlotte Brontë, will receive the big screen treatment this March in a brand new adaptation from Focus Features. Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) stars as Jane, alongside Michael Fassbender (Band of Brothers, Inglourious Basterds) as Rochester, and Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax. Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre) directs.
Judging by the film’s trailer, released today, we’re in for a top-of-the-line adaptation, filled with wind-swept moors, dark-eyed anti-heroes, and, of course, a tough-as-nails heroine.
Dig into Jane’s world by reading an excerpt and buying a copy of the book. Plus, keep an eye on the Reading Group Center for a brand new Reading Group Guide — coming soon!
