  1. I would like to tell previous post, but I follow all your posts, but with new and fascinating images of Jane Eyre, you make the long wait in Spain until the film's release, whichever is shorter. Michael Fassbender, I'm sure it will be a great Rochester and a very attractive actor, there's nothing to see in The devil's whore or Angel ... A greeting from Spain

  2. I'm so excited! I just got finished reading the book a couple of weeks ago, so I'm ready for the miniseries. Too bad I have to wait until May. Thanks for posting!

  3. Wow! Anna Maxwell Martin and David Morrissey! Who would have thought of that? I didn't really know what this film was about, it sounds interesting.

  4. I hadn't read this thoroughly before and didn't think that it would be out in the US for awhile, but then was checking the PBS Masterpiece site and saw it's at the end of the Classic season. Only a few months after it's on in Britain. They seem to be getting quicker with the transfer. Yay

  5. Emily,
    I think we don't have to wait as long to see it on PBS because the UK is airing it around the same time as PBS' classic season. If the UK aired this in the summer, we'd likely have to wait until the following winter to see it!
