I know your job is to speak for yourself, Beth, but you're sure not speaking for me! I found this to be a beautiful, intelligent, and emotionally accurate version of the book, but then Joan Fontaine has never done it for me. This is the Jane I remember from the many times I read the book as a girl, and Mr. Rochester is just fine, too, quite Byronic enough. The trimming was necessary and done well, though it might have been helpful for those who never "had to" read the book to show Jane getting into a stagecoach after running from Thornwood, since we don't have a visual way to appreciate how far away she's gone, and how long she is out on the moors.
