QUICK TAKE:
Drama: In 19th century England, a young woman works as a governess for a small child and ends up falling in love with her brooding employer who harbors a dark secret.
PLOT:
In the 19th century, a young woman named Jane Eyre (MIA WASIKOWSKA) works as a governess to a young girl under the custody of Edward Rochester (MICHAEL FASSBENDER), the brooding master of Thornfield Hall. Despite their differences in age and social standing, Jane and Rochester are drawn to each other and eventually fall in love to the surprise of the manor's housekeeper, Mrs. Fairfax (JUDI DENCH).

Rochester, though, harbors a deep, dark secret that causes Jane to flee the property and find refuge with clergyman St. John Rivers (JAMIE BELL) and his two sisters. St. John gives Jane a home and finds her employment as a teacher at an all-girl's school his church is starting. He eventually falls in love with her and wants to make her his wife so they can travel on a religious mission to India, even her heart still belongs to Rochester.

All the while, Jane is haunted by sad memories of her past, of losing both her parents at a young age; being forced to live with her cruel aunt, Mrs. Reed (SALLY HAWKINS); and subsequently being sent to a strict boarding school where she had to submit to harsh forms of discipline. She takes inspiration from a classmate named Helen (FREYA PARKS), who contracts a fatal illness but dies happy in the knowledge that she is free.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
