A classic story comes to life anew as Mia Wasikowska ("Alice in Wonderland") takes the title role in Charlotte Bronte's saga.
Orphaned when she was young, Jane becomes a governess in the household of the secretive Rochester (Michael Fassbender, "X-Men: First Class"), whom she comes to fear after he has proposed to her. Judi Dench, Jamie Bell and Sally Hawkins also are in a cast that includes Amelia Clarkson as the younger Jane. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by director Cary Fukunaga. *** (PG-13: AS, N, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
