CLOSED Jane Eyre Giveaway

Growing up, I was a huge fan of the classics.  I'd say I read them more than any other genre, and many of them I read more than once.  This includes Jane Eyre, which took over my brain when I was about 17 or so.   I adored it in all of its dark melodrama.  That's why I'm super excited about the new movie adaptation of the book, and pleased as punch to bring you today's giveaway.  It hit theaters on March 11th, and though I haven't seen it yet, I have every intention of doing so.  It looks awesome.  Check it out:

Starring: Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Holliday Grainger, Sally Hawkins, Tamzin Merchant, Imogen Poots, Judi Dench
Director: Cary Fukunaga (“Sin Nombre”)
Screenplay by: Moira Buffini (“Tamara Drewe”); Based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë
MPAA Rating: PG-13
About the Film:
Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds”) star in the romantic drama based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, from acclaimed director Cary Fukunaga (“Sin Nombre”).

As she reflects upon the people and emotions that have defined her, it is clear that the isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. She must now act decisively to secure her own future and come to terms with the past that haunts her – and the terrible secret that Mr. Rochester is hiding and that she has uncovered…
