Are you tired of reading English classics? Why don´t you try seeing one of the screen adaptations of their works? If you are familiar with the novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, don’t hesitate and go see its brand new movie adaptation by Cary Joji Fukunaga with an attractive all-star cast. The leading part was this time entrusted to Mia Wasikovska, also known from Tim Burton’s remake of Alice in Wonderland, who, as the critic Joseph Newall wrote, "beautifully balances the unwavering strength and the innate timidity that is so clear in the novel."

We are sure that some of you have already seen other adaptations of this novel, but we can guarantee that this one offers something you would not expect. Besides the romantic story, the director of the movie also concentrates on the book’s horror and gothic aspects. These are underlined by a setting created by the cinematographer Adriano Goldman and music composed by Dario Manrianelli, full of dread, tenderness and longing.

So, if you want to compare your impressions of the novel with a modern approach to the story, take the chance and go see the movie. It is currently being screened at the Cinema City Aupark and the Cinema City Polus.
