Rochester Clip from Reader, I Married Him

A Special thanks to Midnight Muse for making this clip available. This is the Mr.Rochester segment from 'Reader, I Married Him.' Among other things, there's a brief interview with Toby Stephens, and several clips from Jane Eyre 2006- including one from a scene with Jane and St.John Rivers.

You can download the clip here.

That would be our St.John Rivers in the photo above. The clip is interesting: it presents a lot of varied views on the character. I was surprised, however, at how much I disagree with Lucasta Miller. She even went overboard on Charlotte's criticism of Jane Austen. She didn't object to there being 'no romantic tempests' in her novels. She wanted more penetrating psychological realism, and more poetry. The way this sounds, Charlotte wrote... well, Harlequin/Mills and Boon romances. Mr Rochester the 'quintessential regency rake?' The kind that rape women because they happen to be alone at night and so therefor must be a prostitute? Or maybe she means the romanticised Regency rake? 'Loads of mistresses?' He has three mistresses in ten years, and one of these was for a few months. She also makes it sound like he married Bertha knowing she was mad, just because he was after her money and now he wants to drag Jane down with him. Pft.

to mysticgypsy:

Too many people are trying to download it at the same time. At the bottom of the page, under the error message, there's a timer. It will count off 60 seconds and then give you another link to try. Eventually it will let you download it.

It is taking more time to get around the internet this time, but it should be available this evening. A torrent is available here: http://isohunt.com/download/14118330/jane+eyre+bbc

And I have had offers from a few people who will be posting it in standard format in a few hours.

The link just didn't react. But the other one seems to be working. Thank you ever so much. You're a darling.

*deadpan* What a handsome man that St. John Rivers is. The very epitome of of a Grecian profile.

I bittorrented the movie this morning - I can't say the Ouija board scene or the Return of the Blatant Symbolism impressed me much, but it was certainly better than the first episode. :)
