A new interpretation of Charlotte Brontë’s classic romance about a self-assured governess (Wasikowska) who falls in love with her new employer, Mr. Rochester (Fassbender) — a man burdened by a terrible secret.
There’s no question it’s stunningly mounted, and Wasikowska makes a much stronger Jane than Alice, but the romance is overripe and the climax underdone.
