I have probably already had this as a favourite thing because when I mentioned Favourite Books. But I love Jane Eyre and there is a new picture just released in Australia this week. I know it opened in the US months ago but for some reason it kept getting delayed here which was all so frustrating.
I switched on to Margaret and David on Wednesday night to get their spin. David loved it, Margaret had misgivings. Her problem is that it starts somewhere in the middle of the story and it is told through flashbacks. So we will have to see what I think about it which quite often doesn't coincide with what Margaret and David have to say.
So because it is my Favourite Thing Friday I'm going to cook tea and then head to the movies on my own (which I haven't done for the longest time... which once upon a time I use to do all the time) and see a film that I want to see.
See more favourite things Friday at Mrs P's.
Great idea. Please tell us what you think of it.
Bugger...if I'd read this earlier I could have joined you. Nobody I know wants to see this and I'm desperate to have a look. I think it looks fabulous.
Pictures on your own is quite nice. I hope you enjoy it.
Sounds great Amanda, such a luxury to engross yourself in a period film.
Hoping to visit Howath the home of the Brontes sometime next year - my dream!
I very rarely get to the cinema or the thater for that matter- it is such a treat when I do. Enjoy!
oops sorry about the mis-spelling of theater
Enjoy the movie! Stopping in from FTF. Happy weekend!
I havent seen this yet(I live in the US), but I am going to see if I can track it down and go see it I will let you know what I think.
I haven't seen it either but want to see it. We should have had a virtual get together and all arranged to go see it on the same day!!!!
Looking forward to hearing what you think.
I think I am going to have to go alone too. I am really looking forward to seeing it especially with an Aussie lead. Look forward to hearing what you think.
Jane Eyre is a great story. I hope the movie lived up to it. I saw the 2 hour Pride and Prejudice movie a couple of years ago. It was very unsatisfying. I'll stick with the BBC mini series versions of all those classic books.
It is always hard to watch a movie based on a favourite book.
Glad it was okay if not fantastic.
