Jane Eyre 2011

Ok, so you got me, it's a weak spot a crack in my science fiction and fantasy armour, but I do love a good period drama and Jane Eyre has got to be one of the best around. It has everything, drama, undertones of the thriller/horror and of course it's a timeless love story...

Throw into that mix a generous helping of Michael Fassbender (what a name!) who also gave us an excellent peformance as Magneto in the recent X-Men first class (sorry, am I lowering the tone?) a very authentic Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and a fabulous performance by Judy Dench (who you may have also seen necking with Jonny Depp in the recent installment of Pirates of the Caribbean 4...)and you have the ingredients for a very tasty masterpiece. I was not disappointed. Dramatic landscapes and an excellent cast made this well worth a cinema visit, don't wait for the DVD, see this now. Oh, a helpful tip: take a tissue or two...
