What is it? Brimming with lavish period detail, the latest take on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel sees one of literature’s most famous love stories brought to life once again. If you and hubby-to-be love The Twilight Saga, this Gothic romance is the perfect film for two. And while he’s caught up in the thrilling story line, you can secretly contemplate Jane Eyre’s lavish Victorian wedding dress – who said a trip to the cinema wasn’t W-day research?
The bridal party: Mia Wasikowski (Alice in Wonderland) stars as heroine Jane, alongside Michael Fassbender (X-Men; First Class) as the broody, handsome Mr Rochester with Dame Judi Dench as the loveable housekeeper Mrs Fairfax.
Romance rating: We dig any movie that gets our hearts aflutter, and the on-screen chemistry between Jane and her Mr Rochester is ideal if you’re looking to snuggle up close over a shared bag of popcorn. We also reckon fictitious Thornfield Hall – where all the action takes place – might be our new fave fantasy wedding reception venue – well, that’s if we can convince hubby to go Victorian-gent for the day…
Save the date: Jane Eyre hits cinema screens nationwide from Friday 9 September. Watch the official movie trailer below.
