For the purists among you who seek an 'accurate' adaptation of the book, I would suggest you look elsewhere as you will not find it here. This version is certainly shortened and the language very often veers from the text itself. However, despite all this I find myself incredibly fond of this film. For me, the most important factor is that Hinds and Moreton capture the electricity between the two characters perfectly. Although the screenplay does not always stick to the original I feel we are still left with a strong impression of the nature of the relationship between these characters, particularly Rochester's contrasting violent and passionate side and his sensative wounded side, and Jane's strong sense of moral and self. My suggestion would be to overlook the slightly modern style which so often creeps in to the script and simply become absorbed in the utterly convincing performances of these actors. An outstanding performance, I applaud them both.
