I should have been catching up on my blogging tonight but instead I watched Jane Eyre.
I have been really excited to see the new film. I always love watching movies of my favorite books.
The movie doesn't have to follow the book perfectly for me to enjoy it, as long as they kept the feel of the story the same. And they aren't missing crucial pieces of the book.
I usually always like the movie, sometimes almost as much as the book. I love a good movie almost as much as a good book.
I enjoyed Jane Eyre and I think they did a good job keeping true to the feel of the book but I felt like I was only getting snip bits of the book. If I hadn't read the book I may have not understood the importance of some of the events of her life. I really wish there had been more. It just didn't feel like there was enough substance.
It is so hard to turn a classic, such as Jane Eyre, into a movie. There are so many details and events in the book. I can see how it would be hard to fit it all and keep the movie a decent length.
I did think the acting was great and I thought they cast the characters well. But the movie will never compare to the book.
Now I want to read the book again. I sure do love that story!
