The New Jane

My mom, sister and I went to see the new Jane Eyre movie Saturday. It was fantastic. Beautiful, dark, tragic and just perfect. The girl who played Jane, Mia Waskowska, was also Alice in Alice in Wonderland. I think it is definitely proof that the girl can act when she can be luminously beautiful in Alice and perfectly plain as Jane. Okay, it might have a little to do with the make-up and costume people but still, she is amazing. I am not usually a fan of darkness in a movie but lets face it, I think Charlotte Bronte would have loved it that way. Granted half the fun was getting to go with my mom and sister but this really was a great movie. I highly reccomend it if you can find it. It is a limited engagement so far and only available at one theater in our area but well worth the effort to find!

So, I've been dying to know about this and here you are with the major scoopage! Did you like it as much as the one with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson? I love that one, but of course I must see this one too. I LOVE Jane!

Didn't see it yet, but I do love this actress. I should know her name.
Anyway, I think she looks almost exactly like one of Aaron's school friends, but nobody sees it but me.
It drives me mad! :)
