Wednesday Videos Love Jane Eyre

WednesdayVideoJane Eyre was published on October 6. 1847.  In honor of this auspicious event, here’s a clip from my very favorite adaptation, the 2006 version starring Ruth Wilson (that smile!) and Toby Stephens (swoon).  I love how this scene combines Rochester being both a bit of a bully and a at the same time reveals his compassion – look at his face when Jane says that her relatives sent her to school because she was poor.  and I love how in this scene Ruth Wilson shows Jane’s shyness and vulnerability, but also shows her being a little daring, teasing Rochester about the money he still owes her.  Here you go:
