Movie Reviews

Worth it for the extras
Georgia Burns | Atlanta GA | 06/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I already have the inital 2006 version of Jane Eyre with no extras so thought I could justify another purchase to get the commentary and star interviews. The truth is I wanted to see and hear more of Toby Stephens. Anyway, the interviews were quite good. The lead actors, director and writer all gave very interesting insights into their ideas for character and motivation. There is also running commentary on the first and fourth sections of the movie with all kinds of background info about locations, actor struggles, weather, you name it. Very entertaining except for the fact that my copy has the sound slightly out of synch for the movie running behind the commentary. I haven't watched Wuthering Heights yet but am disturbed by the other reviewer's remark of a rape by Heathcliff. Bottom line: extras or no extras, this is a GREAT movie with enough passion and heart to please anyone looking for a timeless story well told. The best version of Jane Eyre ever and Toby Stephens as Mr. Rochester is sublime."
Buy ONLY Jane Eyre
Summer's Mama | Canton, GA | 06/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought both the Jane Eyre DVD and the Bronte Collection (which is the same Jane Eyre DVD and a version of Wuthering Heights).
I absolutely LOVED the Jane Eyre movie and it prompted me to read the classic which is so good.
I have also read the Wuthering Heights as well. However I did not enjoy either the Wuthering Heights DVD nor the book. Wuthering Heights is such a savage novel and very depressing. No redemption for the morally debase characters.
Jane Eyre however is so entralling, it is as if there are three wonderful stories in one book. It has so many twists and turns and it has romance, mystery, horror and it reflects some strong, uplifting characters. Despite Mr Rochester's dark past, I fell absolutely in Love with him!!! The Book is Fabulous and Toby Stephens is a SPLENDID, TOO-Handome, but absolutely WONDERFUL Mr Edward Fairfax Rochester. I watched the Jane Eyre DVD six times in one week. I have seen a couple other versions, BUT none as well done as this Masterpiece Theatre production with Toby!!!
Buy the DVD of Jane Eyre, forget about the Bronte collection, Wuthering Heights is not worth it."
Very Well Done
L. Longhurst | APO, AE United States | 02/08/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"These two movies are very well done and entertaining. I purchased the set after seeing the first half of Jane Eyre on PBS, then not being able to see the second half---I didn't want to miss it! And I wasn't sorry. If you are unfamiliar with the stories, beware, they are somewhat darker than your typical love stories."
Gently Sensual
S. B. Clayton | Riverside County, Ca. USA | 04/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's different and wonderful. The main actors are excellent. It is so nice to see little flickers of communication, understanding, caring, and then the eventual love. The facial expressions, the little exhales, and the eye-contact between Jane and Edward are very moving. This is the best version I have seen and I have seen many."
