Book to Film Club March 2011 Film: Jane Eyre

Photobucket

Jane Eyre, our February book and March film selection for the Book to Film Club came this weekend - at least it did here in Toronto, although I've heard from folks in other locations that it's not out yet. I hope it reaches everyone soon! The film version of this classic novel by Charlotte Brontë stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland (2010), The Kids Are All Right), Michael Fassbender (Fish Tank), Judi Dench and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott), and is directed by Cary Fukunaga (Sin nombre).

Here are some things to ponder when thinking, writing and/or journaling about the film:
  • Did you enjoy the film?
  • Was the film what you expected from reading the book?
  • Have you seen other film versions Jane Eyre? If so - how does this one compare?
  • How did the book and the film compare?
  • How did you feel about the tone of the film?
  • How did you feel about the casting? Were the characters what you expected?
  • Were there characters, moments or ideas you liked better in the book? If so, what were they?
  • What was your favourite thing about the book?
  • Were there characters, moments or ideas you liked better in the film? If so, what were they?

  • Are you happy you read the book before seeing the film?
