Movie of the week: Jane Eyre – 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’s Billy Elliot? He’s St. John Rivers. Though the cast has to prove it can take on such classic and well known characters, the trailer gives hints of a genuinely creepy and thrilling adaptation that could very well breathe new life into this old story.
