Jane Eyre ... just do it!

August 28, 2011

.... I've been sleeping, breathing and practically eating shoes 24/7 for the past 8 weeks. So just thought it might be nice to take 5 and grab a movie .... and then tell you all about it before I dive back into my shoe carry on ... so here goes!

The Oscars might be six months away, but I tip the latest adaptation of Jane Eyre to take out a swag of awards.


I loved its melodrama and powerful lead performance by Australian, Mia Wasikowska. But what really made me weak at the knees is how visually it is beautifully balanced. The Gothic elements of Charlotte Bronte’s signature classic are mirrored in scenery and costumes that are saturated in blue and grey tones. In many ways, it reminds me of a 19th century Dutch painting.


If you haven’t already, don’t miss the chance to see Jane Eyre on the big screen. It’s the perfect Sunday afternoon film…with a choc-top in hand of course!
