C's rating of the film Les soeurs Brontë

In the first half I was bothered by so much Branwell, but it makes sense and French Ethan Hawke was good. Adjani, Huppert, and Pissier are all amazing and equally as strong in their performances and embodiment of the sisters. Saw this a few days after rereading Elizabeth Hardwick's great essay on the Brontes (http://www.nybooks.com/articles/1972/05/04/working-girls-the-brontes/).
