I enjoyed the story of Jane Eyre. This is the 2nd version I watched and it was moving! I wish there were more movies as brilliant as this!

A captivating film but those who have read the book will find that much was glossed over or not explained. The music was perfect--very haunting.

This movie receives a 5/5 stars for doing well.It could went over the top, For a T.V. version, and for that this movie did surprisingly well, (though a little inaccurate) it still viewed to be good. However, the book is always better than the movie. Now, if you want to see a real good Jane Eyre, with full accuracy, watch The Timothy Dalton version-pure delight.

An excellent 4 hour viewing. More details were revealed with this presentation. Well done.

One of the better recent versions. The principals are the right age and appearance (yes, I've become resigned to somewhat handsome Rochesters), although a little lacking in chemistry. There are ill-advised revisions of Bronte, but the acting and direction are skillful enough to keep things moving briskly. Two things save it for me. One is a screenplay with some sense of humour, and the other is Ruth Wilson, the only Jane who ever made me cry. Bonus: anachronisms aplenty, including a clergyman's widow in 1840 saying Mr. Rochester is giving biology lessons.

Jane Eyre is my favorite story in book form. But with this film, the producers took too many liberties with the story line. Toby Stephens is not Edward Rochester-Stephens is too good looking. One of the more weak cinema renditions of this story.

This is my very favorite version of Jane Eyre. Ruth Wilson is a very believable Jane and the sweet chemistry between her Jane and Toby Stephens Mr. Rochester is perfect. Toby Stephens is absolutely wonderful as Mr. Rochester displaying at first a certain understated wisdom, then vulnerability and all the while becoming ever so subtly. more and more romantic..

Good drama w/romance commitment from a time long forgotten. Deffinately family. Good story, plenty of twists/turns mostly good. well done.

My favourite adaptation of the book, which is one my favourite books of all time. Love the detail of the miniseries, especially since a lot of the book is included in the miniseries. Its one of those that when I watch the first disc I have to watch the second one. Highly recommended.

I love this version of Jane Eyre. Toby Stephen's is by far my favorite Mr. Rochester. I wonder sometimes if I have seen the same movie as others. I felt there was plenty of chemistry between the characters portraying Jane and Mr. Rochester. I plan on purchasing this at some point.

Very creditable job of actually following the book. Toby Stephens is the yummiest Rochester ever. Well acted, though Adele is more irritating than charming -- fortunately, her appearances are rare and brief. And for once, Jane is, as described by Charlotte Bronte, plain and small.
