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.

  2. just love everyone's picks…. several movies I really want to see now (Titus Andronicus, for one!)
