Jane Eyre 1973 Available from Netflix

You can now rent the BBC mini series with Sorcha Cusack and Michael Jayston from Netflix.

This BBC adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel stars Sorcha Cusack as the plucky Jane Eyre, an orphan who muddles through harsh conditions to find love in the arms of her moody employer (Michael Jayston). After being raised by an abusive aunt, young Jane survives six years in a strict, humorless school and later becomes a governess. But within the walls of her new home at Thornfield Hall, a strange and terrible secret lies in wait.

I highly recomend it.

It’s also available to rent in the UK via Screen Select, which is kind of equivalent.

I'll be sure to look out for it. I am always on the look out for anything made in my birth year (1973).

The last version I saw recently was the Sussannah York/George C. Scott one.

Do you have a link for that, Liz?

I hope you enjoy it. I believe it is a masterpiece and one of the best adaptations of the novel.
