My favorite version of Jane Eyre is a mini-series I saw on PBS or A&E years ago with Timothy Dalton and Zelah Clarke. My least favorite is probably the Orson Welles/Joan Fontaine one.
Just got back and I'm really pleased with the adaptation. I thought it captured the spirit and feel of the book beautifully. And I thought both leads were brilliant. I might have liked to see them age Fassbender a little -- I always think of Rochester as older than that -- but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing about either of them.
