I'm a huge sucker for period dramas. I loved the book. This is the best adaption I've seen.
I adore the British Classic romance books/movies; PBS has done the authors justice with their renditions of the literary work.
Jane Eyre bored me when I read it the first time in school. But the depth and darkness of the novel is brought to gripping life by this BBC adaptation. The BBC has a tradition of excelling in its adaptations of Victorian Novels, but Jane Eyre is possibly one of the best they have done, ever. If you really feel like shutting yourself in for a day or a night of feeling good film time for yourself, Jane Eyre comes highly recommended!
