The Boreal Chorus's rating of the film Jane Eyre

Once again, two good actors supported by a classy period piece cast. A little too predictably mainstream in its design and script (and direction), it's somewhat saved by a typically good performance by Gainbourg. This, when you're in the mood for dependable classic literature that was once-upon-a-time profound, and still could be if it were treated like art instead of product.
