Directed by Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre), Jane Eyre is based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Charlotte Brontë, and stars Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Sophie Ward and Craig Roberts.
After a bleak childhood, Jane Eyre (Wasikowska) goes out into the world to become a governess. As she lives happily in her new position at Thornfield Hall, she meets the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house, Mr. Rochester (Fassbender). Jane and her employer grow close in friendship and she soon finds herself falling in love with him. Happiness seems to have found Jane at last, but could Mr. Rochester’s terrible secret be about to destroy it forever?
Jane Eyre, which has been critically praised following its US release, is scheduled to hit UK cinemas on September 9.
