Love that poster. Definitely one of my favorites I’ve seen so far this year.
I have not read Jane Eyre nor did I know much about the story going in. I just loved the poster and thought it had a good trailer. The resulting movie was no where near what I had seen advertised. It is being touted as having a “bold new vision” but I didn’t really see anything very bold on screen. I thought it was well shot and had good actors but I just couldn’t really get into the story in any way and just thought it was kind of dull. I thought the leads were very good, especially Fassbender, but I just couldn’t really get into it. I feel like I am not smart enough or well read enough to be reviewing this. I have no idea how accurate it is or anything.
