Watching Jane Eyre

I guess it's all about movies this week, because today I want to gush about Jane Eyre! A few weeks ago, I came home from the library with the BBC 1983 Timothy Dalton version of this movie, just for fun. I found bits and snatches of time over the last couple of weeks, to watch what turned out to be a 5 1/2 hour movie! (11 1/2-hour episodes.)

I can't remember if I've seen this version before, but I loved it! Of course, all my favorite parts can be found on YouTube, so I'm sharing:

After the fire, we get see that Mr. Rochester is harboring some major feelings for Jane:

Now, everything is out in the open..... well... almost everything....

Do you think you would be strong enough to turn your back and walk away?

But of course, she comes back again!

Ah, what fun to revisit this story. Now I want to read it again of course.

  1. Wow, 5 1/2 hours is quite a time commitment! I have heard that that version is good though.
