These comments need edited so as not to confuse people. Reviewers are confusing a story by Charlotte Bronte with another story by Jane Austen... "Jane Eyre" & "Emma" are NOT the same titles/stories - at all!

Ciaran Hinds makes any production he's in memorable, and his Mr. Rochester is no exception. He and Samantha Morton play beautifully off of one another. Ms. Morton's demure yet strong self-possession in the face of Hinds' gruff romancing is certainly worth watching.

A good television production for the 1990s but it hasn't aged entirely well. Mark Strong is a major character here back before he became internationally famous and when he still had a full head of hair!

Beautiful version. The screenwriter is Andrew Davies who also dramatized the version of Pride & Prejudice starring Colin Firth. Particularly enjoyable is the sublime Samantha Morton's nuanced scene-stealing portrayal of "Harriet". The VPL offers 3 other film versions.

i think this version is absolutely the best, the casting is amazing, the acting is amazing, the sets are amazing. i put the paltrow one a poor second (though it's nice that it includes many of the scenes that the beckinsale one omits). i couldn't even get through the garai one. her behaviour is way too 20th/21st century. it spoils it for me.

I liked this version a lot, but I think I prefer the one with Ramola Garai. Anyway, this is extremely well done - acting, scenery, costumes, beautiful horses, etc.

These comments seem to have mixed Jane Eyre with Emma!

Samantha Morton is the best Jane of all "Jane Eyre" production.

This version is also the best of all "Jane Eyre" story ever made.

I really like Morton and Hinds as Jane and Rochester (my favourite characterisations of the versions I watched - I loved their interactions), but I would have liked to have the story line closer to the book - a miniseries rather than a film.
