2312 Film choice

Jane Eyre (2011) HHHHH BBC2, 8.30pm

Cary Fukunaga, director of the Mexican gang thriller 'Sin Nombre', was the unlikely though inspired choice to helm this sharp new take on Charlotte Bronte's eternal classic.

Mia Wasikowska plays the eponymous heroine, who, upon turning 18 and completing her miserable boarding school education, finds work as a governess for the ward of Mr Rochester (played as a masterclass in brooding intensity by Michael Fassbender), master of Thornfield Hall.

For a while, Jane thinks that at last she may at last have found happiness, but a terrible secret in the attic derails her plans.
