Movie of the week:¬†Jane Eyre ‚Äď Premieres Friday
Yet another version of this literary canon novel is coming to theaters, this time featuring Mia Wasikowska, known most recently for the whimsical Alice in Wonderland and Oscar-nominated The Kids Are All Right. And remember the kid from 2000‚Äôs Billy Elliot? He‚Äôs St. John Rivers.
