Source of story Novel of the same name by Charlotte Brontë
Writer/s Script Moira Buffini
Director Cary Fukunaga

Elevator Pitch A young woman who has been abandoned by her rich aunt finds a position as governess to a young French girl, the ward of a rich but insular man in a remote castle. The two fall in love, but there is something stirring in the attic which will prevent their happiness.
Content Scenes in the isolation of the English moorland and the grim granite castles and houses as Jane interacts with the other characters. A lot of talk by candlelight. No drugs, sex or nudity but a bit of drinking at various points.
A View This film was very well thought of by the critics and the public alike and so probably a watch if you like that sort of thing. For me the director was a little too preoccupied with the artisitc presentation, which made some points of the plot confusing and never really identified the layout of the hall.
