Buy it... if you have always appreciated Dario Marianelli's ability to exercise technical mastery of a subdued, respectful manner in his period dramas.

Avoid it... if romantic warmth and a pleasant demeanor are your requirements of this, one of the gloomiest musical representations of Jane Eyre to ever exist despite its challengingly rewarding beauty.

Marianelli
Marianelli
Jane Eyre: (Dario Marianelli) Dozens of adaptations of Charlotte Bronte's early feminist novel of 1847 have existed on the big and small screens through the years, and 2011's version by young director Cary Fukunaga sought to be different from its predecessors by emphasizing the darkly gothic elements of the otherwise romantic tale. The basic plotline of the original book remains, the 19th Century protagonist growing up an orphan and eventually becoming the governess for the estate at Thornfield Hall. Her pious beliefs are countered by a strong sense of self-reliance, remaining more independent than other women depicted in that period of time and thus gaining it a feminist reputation. As she falls in love with Edward Rochester, the head of Thornfield Hall, she begins to experience strange hauntings in the mansion. When these are revealed to be the work of Rochester's insane wife, escaping from her confinement in the house to cause havoc in the night, Jane runs away and nearly perishes along the moors before a miraculous discovery about her family and a bittersweet reunion with Rochester at his destroyed estate close out the tale of forgiving romance. A staple of British period depictions, Jane Eyre is the kind of costume drama that puts most men to sleep, and while that trait does extend to this 2011 telling (and its box office returns during its limited release were dismal), reviews kindly regarded the performance by Mia Wasikowska in the titular role and the darker colors of the interpretation. No stranger to these period films of English cinema is composer Dario Marianelli, for whom the majority of his mainstream recognition has resulted from such pictures. His similar reverently dramatic music for Pride & Prejudice and Atonement in the mid-2000's, the latter earning him Academy Award and Golden Globe wins, came to define his career despite his production of arguably superior music for other, lesser known projects. Still, a wide fanbase of support for his scores for those Joe Wright films remains, and Jane Eyre will no doubt enthrall listeners who continue to hold that Marianelli style in high regard.
