PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
A mousy governess who softens the heart of her employer soon discovers that he's hiding a terrible secret.
Cary Fukunaga wanted a scene to illustrate how much Mr. Rochester's presence at Thornfield Hall disrupted the lives of its permanent residents, so he wrote the dinner scene, in which Mrs. Fairfax, Jane, and Adele try to carry on a conversation while Mr. Rochester fires a gun right outside the window. This scene does not take place in the novel, and in the film's commentary Fukunaga claims it was the only original scene written for the film.
I offer you my hand, my heart. Jane, I ask you to pass through life at my side. You are my equal and my likeness. Will you marry me?
Jane Eyre: Are you mocking me?
Rochester: You doubt me.
Jane Eyre: Entirely.
