Chick flick cry fest for me here. Jane Eyre is one of my favourite stories, a plan girl who's lived a lonely life wins the heart of the charming and highly sought after man. It's the ultimate romance.
I think this could be considered another version of the beauty and the beast idea. It's a story about strength, faith and values.
At the core of it, Jane Eyre is a story about women standing up for themselves at a time when it was nearly impossible for a woman to have a voice.
what do i think i learned from this film?
Keep the faith and always stick to your values no matter what someone else might off you. Never surrender
