A detailed adaption with brilliant actors!,
This review is from: Jane Eyre [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I've read the novel several times always trying to imagine how the characters would look like. And when I watched the BBC adaption that was the first big surprise: Timothy Dalton matched the book character Rochester so well! And "plain Jane" was brilliantly played by Zelah Clarke. In addition to that watching the film was like reading the book, everything very detailed and close to the novel. From now on I won't be able to read the book again without having the film in mind, it was just excellent. Anyone reading the book should watch the BBC adaption afterwards, I would even watch it with students at school!
