Annotated Bibliography Jane Eyre. Dir. Cary Fukunaga. Perf. Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Bell.2011.
This is the latest of the many adaptations of Jane Eyre gothic film directed by Cary Fukunaga. The film begins with Jane escaping from Rochester High Gothic Thorn field Hall, prior to flashing back to the days when she lived with her cruel and indignant aunt. Even though, in the novel Jane is depicted as a plain young woman, in this film she is far from being plain but more of a pale stern girl. However, the film has supplementary visual sense articulated in voluptuous visuals, in addition to motivated art direction. Notably, as the film moves away from Thorn field, it loses its momentum as well as magic, especially when the leads are split and thus loses some of its spark.
Masterpiece Theatre: Jane Eyre. Dir. Susanna White. Perf. Ruth Wilson, Toby Stephens and Susanna White. 2007.
This is a sensual version of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel directed by Susana White. The film is somehow modern in its setting with plenty of moody, enduring and romantic settings. Toby Stephens stars as Mr. Rochester, Ruth Wilson is played by Jane Eyre, and Lady Ingram is played by Francesca Annis. There are a number of liberties obtained from the source novel, as the director has been able to incorporate romantic relationship with intelligent screenplay. This is notable with the authentically evocative quality of the fundamental mystery. Even though, this film version glosses through earlier period Jane’s complicated childhood, it successfully settles into the feeling of the story. Moreover, Wilson who plays the role of Jane comes out perfectly as intelligent plus appealing.

Moreover, the article offers an Interpretation of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre novel religious themes as well as the theological plus doctrinal controversies.
The main argument of Lamonaca is that Charlotte Bronte’s declares a message of far-reaching spiritual independence for women without taking into account the spiritual impact of such changes.
