Laurel's Comments    
Cover ArtJane Eyre [DVD]
by Santer, Diederick
For those who haven’t read the book and are looking for a romance, I’m sure you’ll like this movie. However, I have read the book and was rather disappointed. Instead of being a strong woman with an early kind of feminism, I found Jane’s character in the movie weak and simpering. Instead of displaying courage as she went out by herself to earn her own living, she was crying all the time and pitying herself (something she was determined not to do in the book). Alas, all the strength of Jane’s character, all her substance, her convictions, have been squeezed out of the movie to the point that we don’t even know why she makes the decisions she does. It’s no wonder: in the book, all her decisions are based on her strong convictions due to her Christianity and feminist beliefs; themes which the movie goes to great lengths to leave out. My recommendation: Read the Book   posted Aug 21, 2008 at 9:49AM
