Finally got to see it last night- the art house that I prefer wound up getting it on the schedule before I managed to get to the one where it showed up first.
Overall I liked it. I liked how oppressive and isolating the setting looked, and I loved Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax. I wished that they'd let Jane's reunion with Rochester at the end go a bit longer, though. And my mother, whose only familiarity with the story was one reading of the book some years ago, had trouble keeping track of the timeline with the flashbacks.
