Jane Eyre On Screen

The New York Times has a nice rundown on Jane Eyre as the most filmed 19th century classic novel. Money quote:

“Jane Austen is like ‘Gossip Girl,’ and Charlotte and Emily were like Goth twins,” he said. “It’s a totally different sensibility. The emotional world that Charlotte inhabited is much darker and more dangerous.”

Apparently that makes me a Gossip Girl fan. I had no idea...
