Trailer: Jane Eyre
Bright and early yesterday, I found myself chatting on the phone with Jamie Bell. The interview was ostensibly to discuss The Eagle, but I couldn't resist asking him about Jane Eyre.
For the specifics of our chat, I'm afraid you'll have to wait until 2011 (not long to go now!), but the interview did remind me that I haven't yet raved about the latter film's absolutely gorgeous poster.
The colours, the faces, Mia's stance - this is a poster I would love to frame and have on my wall (and no, not just because I refer to Michael Fassbender as 'my future husband'!).
We've all got a while to wait until the film's release, so there's plenty of time to revisit Charlotte Bronte's marvelous book, and also to catch up on director Cary Fukunaga's stellar feature debut Sin nombre.
Now, here's the official synopsis:
Based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, the romantic drama stars Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds”) in the lead roles. In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…
Also starring Dame Judy Dench, Sally Hawkins and Jamie Bell.
And finally for the trailer:
