Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
2011, Starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender
Directed by Cary Fukunaga

How many movie versions of one story can there be? I counted eight different adaptations of Jane Eyre on Netflix, one dating back to 1934, and have read there are over 20 film versions of this Brontë classic. I recently enjoyed the newest film, released earlier this year. Unlike some period pieces, I felt it moved along at an entertaining pace.

  1. The husband says Harry Potter #5.

    This isn't a movie, but Wicked (the musical) is significantly better than Wicked (the book).

    1. Had I had even the smallest amount of free time this week, I would have participated in this post with "Deathly Hallows Part2." Perhaps it's geeky and a bit dorky to say, but I consider that movie to the one of the best I've ever seen and certainly the best movie I've seen in ten years. It was very true to the novel.
