Australian young actress Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are Alright) will be walking the Red carpet for the Australian Premiere of Universal Pictures’ JANE EYRE this Friday 17th June as part of the Sydney Film Festival. The screening will start 9:30pm in the State Theatre.
Cary Fukunaga brings a steely vision to this compelling adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s renowned novel, drawing deep from the gothic sensibility of Jack Clayton’s The Innocents and exhibiting the assured style that won him best director at Sundance for his very different debut feature Sin Nombre. When Jane Eyre (Mia Wasikowska) is sent to work as a governess at Thornfield Manor alongside housekeeper Mrs Fairfax (Judi Dench), she is intensely attracted to and repelled by the singularly abrupt and intelligent master of the house, Rochester (Michael Fassbender, star of SFF 2008 Official Competition winner Hunger, is positively swoon-worthy). Following her international success with Tim Burton’s Alice and Lisa Cholodenko’s The Kids Are Alright (SFF Closing Night 2010), Australian actress Wasikowska augments her spectral beauty with the perfect combination of fragility and independence in a performance that cements her reputation as a sparkling new talent and will make empathetic bosoms heave the world over.
