Romance in a Small Town

Romances set in small towns have a particular charm. The characters feel like sort of like family. Too bad these locations are fictional.

Jane Eyre Revisited… Again

Jane Eyre is a classic I love to revisit. I don't think I am alone, considering the oodles of sequels, adaptations, and movies based on the book. And [rapturous sigh] a new movie version is being released on March 11, 2011. If you are a fellow Eyre-head, browse the Jane-related works at CPL to pass the time as you wait breathlessly for the latest movie to premiere.

Movies

Jane Eyre — I love Charlotte Gainsbourg as Jane, but, really, what were they thinking to cast William Hurt as Rochester?

Jane Eyre by BBC Enterprises — I can't help myself. I adore this 1985 BBC miniseries, even though Timothy Dalton is way too handsome to be Rochester.

Jane Eyre by BBC; WGBH Boston — Speaking of good looking, have you seen this Masterpiece Theatre version with Toby Stephens?
