I realized I made it through my whole review of this film without a mention of Dame Judi. A lot of that is surely due to her being such a go-to casting choice. As Rochester's earnest houemaid, she's perfectly serviceable, but this umpteenth "Eyre" adaptation is all about Ms. Wasikowska and Mr. Fassbender.
Do a little fist pump for Judi (may she never stop working!), then mosey on over to SouthPhillyReview.com, where my full review of "Jane Eyre" is available for your consumption. CLICK HERE.
