Just back from the flics where I saw Jane Eyre, a new atmospheric adaptation easily worth going to see for the visuals alone. Wouldn't have thought this old stalwart of literature could stand another retelling and still be interesting, but I was wrong. Brilliant, brilliant acting of thesps Wasikowska & Fassbender, with beautiful support from Jamie Bell and Dame Judi Dench.

Of course, I embarrassed my friend again by bursting into tears on several occasions...Why is it that I always cry at movies? I don't think I'm particularly sentimental, but films (and books) bring on the waterworks more often than not.

We didn't know it when we decided on what film we were going to see, but it turned out that it was a '50+ matinee', which meant that not only was the movie shown at half-price, but coffee and cakes (and a goodie bag for the ladies in the audience!) were included and served in the interval. Yes, this one had an interval! I don't think I'd witnessed an interval in 20 years or more ;-)

I love Jane Eyre, and I've been meaning to see that adaptation. I should put it on the Netflix queue.

No question, you really should. It's a wonderful film and I know you'll like it.

I too am a great one for crying at movies.
