Jane Eyre, Certified Copy, Sucker Punch, West is West, Curling, Hobo With a Shotgun

Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender are the all new Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester.

You have so much choice this week, ranging from sublime art to outright junk.

Here's the list.

Jane Eyre   4 1/2 stars

Certified Copy   3 1/2

Nostalgia For the Light   4

Curling   3

West is West   3

Sucker Punch   2 1/2

Hobo With a Shotgun   1 1/2

Diary of a Wimpy Kid    ---
 



JANE EYRE: There have been so many movie versions of this enduring tale, you’ve probably seen at least one already. Go again. This is one of the best. It’s true to Charlotte Bronte’s beloved novel and still puts a slight modern touch to it. And best of all both Jane and Mr. Rochester are portrayed perfectly. Jane, as played by Mia Wasikowska (last seen as Alice in Wonderland and as one of The Kids Are Alright) is forthright without seeming overly tough. Rochester, a character the movies hardly ever get right, is given just the right level of moodiness by Michael Fassbender.
