It's film night in the Public Hall on Saturday with Jane Eyre this month's feature film. It was only released last month and has done well at the box office.

Cary Fukunaga directed and had been in England promoting a film when he met with the BBC and learned about their plans for a new adaptation. It was decided to play up the Gothic elements of the classic novel.

Fukunaga says: "I’ve spent a lot of time rereading the book and trying to feel out what Charlotte Brontë was feeling when she was writing it. That sort of spookiness that plagues the entire story... there’s been something like 24 adaptations and it’s very rare that you see those sorts of darker sides.

"They treat it like it’s just a period romance and I think it’s much more than that."

The film has been very well received by the critics with an 86% approval rating, according to Wikipedia.

The New York Theatre review said: "A splendid example of how to tackle the daunting duty of turning a beloved work of classic literature into a movie. Neither a radical updating nor a stiff exercise in middlebrow cultural respectability, Mr. Fukunaga’s film tells its venerable tale with lively vigor and an astute sense of emotional detail."

Tickets are £5 and are on sale at the Post Office. The show starts at 7.30pm this Saturday, 29th October.
