Ruth Wilson, as Jane Eyre, and Toby Stephens, as Edward Rochester, lead a stellar cast in a compelling new adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's much-loved novel Jane Eyre.
Orphaned at a young age, Jane is placed in the care of her wealthy aunt Mrs Reed, who neglects her in favour of her own three spoiled children. Jane is branded a liar, and Mrs Reed sends her to the grim and joyless Lowood School where she stays until she is 19.
Determined to make the best of her life, Jane takes a position as a governess at Thornfield Hall, the home of the alluring and unpredictable Edward Rochester. It is here that Jane's journey into the world, and as a woman, begins.
Writer Sandy Welch (North And South, Magnificent Seven), producer Diederick Santer (Shakespeare Retold Much Ado About Nothing) and director Susanna White (Bleak House) join forces to bring this ever-popular tale of passion, colour, madness and gothic horror to BBC ONE.
The classic saga of Jane Eyre is brought vibrantly to life

“Its stars are very beautiful, a little bit too much for Rochester but however it is a pleasure spending many hours watching this DVD. A little bit sensual and not too far from the book. Subtitle are very usefull for Frenchies!”

“I give it a five because it is, in my opinion, the best production of Jane Eyre so far. I've watched them all. I'm a fan. However, I want to see this version without the bits cut out. I wonder if that will ever be possible. Maybe someone will be good enough to let me know when this happens. That's when I'll give it 100% approval. Well done.”

“This is one of my favourite novels, and I know it backwards. I found it very true to the book, and especially loved the soundtrack and the photography”
