Beautiful adaptation

Of course, the book is a million times better, but this adaptation was truly wonderful; great acting, beautiful soundtracks, and gorgeous cinematography. It's a darker-themed romance with a focus on Jane herself. Pretty appropriate for the most part, but it might be too serious or grown-up for younger children to understand.
