Jane Eyre

Rated PG-13 121 min. 2011



The 27th filmed adaptation of Jane Eyre (why not, right?) is directed by Cary Fukunaga, whose aesthetic is impossibly crisp, just handheld enough to feel contemporary without alienating anyone, and trades close-ups with mid-shots efficiently but without any energy. It's a do-gooder style about which only a real old-timer would find anything new. Worse, he handles the love story so lazily that Jane comes across as dumb, not doomed. Fukunaga doesn't seem that interested in this material, and with so few opportunities given to female directors, it seems a shame that producers picked the wrong man for the job.
