mia wasikowska as jane eyre
February 6, 2011 § 6 Comments
I remember months and months back when I first heard of a Jane Eyre movie in the works. The talk was Ellen Page was to star in it. NO! — that was my reaction. It’s not that I don’t like her per se. It’s an accent thing for me. Movies like this simply have to be perfect and accents are crucial. I haven’t heard of the Jane Eyre movie again until a friend of mine who knew I liked Jane Eyre tweeted the IMDB link to me. Now, I haven’t seen Mia Wasikowska but in Alice in Wonderland and I didn’t really notice her all that much, but at least she’s Australian. And if you stare at her expression on this poster, there is something there… I can’t quite explain it, but I’m drawn to this expression. I hope this movie does not prove to be a disappointment (like, aherm, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes *eyes rolling*). It can never be at par with the book but I hope it will be something like what Martin Scorcese’s The Age of Innocence was with the book: a complement.
