Creepy, haunting and mesmerizing.
I have always fallen in love with photographs and films that capture that early morning light and Jane Eyre seemed to manage it in every shot. The light, the mist and the general colouring of the film was just dreamlike and beautiful. I have yet to read the book, which isn't like me at all but if the film was that good I have high hopes for the novel. Mia Wasikowska has a very ethereal look about her, which made her perfect to fit the character and the mood of the film. Fassbender made a great Rochester - he had a strong presence yet still came across as likeable. Judi Dench, awesome - enough said.
I woke up a little hungover obsessing about the clothes and hairstyles throughout the film so attempted to have a little fun and recreate... massively geeky but improved my fragile state. Even so I can feel an illustration coming on...
'Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you - and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as heard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you'
