Jane Eyre

Show Summary

Jane Eyre is a 1983 television mini-series on BBC (British Broadcasting Channel). The series is a fresh television adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's 1947 novel, Jane Eyre. The series follows, with great dramatic prowess, the orphan from childhood and on into her adulthood. The young Jane Eyre lives a miserable life with her aunt. After years of mental torture she is sent to Longwood, a school for those that cannot afford a proper education. Upon advice from a friend she posts a job listing advertising her services as a governess. She is quickly scooped up and goes to live and work for Edward Rochester, a cold and mysterious man. As the story unfolds we start to see a blossoming love affair between the young governess and her employer, but everything isn't always what it seems. Around every corner, Jane seems to be seeing shadowy figures in windows and mumbling voices behind doors and walls. There is someone else in the household, but no one will admit to it. There is a great secret in the Rochester house, one that might be strong enough to keep the two love-birds apart. The series received great praise for it's outstanding adaptation and went on to win numerous awards of excellence.moreless
