Jane Eyre trailer

I've been thinking, not that I'm averse to having another adaptation, but that it's not particularly needed and I'm not particularly interested. Even with Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender and Judi freakin' Dench.

It's possible I've been mistaken.

I'm there.

Of course, it helps that I adore Jane Eyre. Now, if someone did a remake of Wuthering Heights, I'd probably run the other way....

The problem with Wuthering Heights is that it is chock-full of exceptionally dysfunctional and unlikable people, and people who make movies are terrified of that. If someone ever actually had the guts to adapt it that way, I'd totally be there.

Lifeline Theatre just did it, and as always, did a lovely job with it (Christina Calvit did the adaptation), but I still hated everyone and kept thinking they all needed therapy.

I'm so bummed I didn't get to that. I loved doing her P&P so much.

They all DESPERATELY need therapy. It scares me that people miss that. As cleolinda says, it's not a romance. It's a horror story.

Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax. Must see. I've always liked Mrs. Fairfax.

I love that she doesn't look like a dithery flake, which is a bit too common for my taste. It's my least favorite thing about the musical.

I'm pretty much all about the Toby Stephens version. But there had to have been something in this to entice Dench, which is intriguing.

Another one? Well, I'll probably watch that one too. (I totally wish I had my Methos as Rochester icon loaded)

Trailer looks awesome!
