Movie Info

This version of Charlotte Bronte's classic romance is greatly subdued and plays down the Gothic aspects in favor of creating a more realistic view of the star-crossed relationship between two tortured souls.

    The passionate tale of forbidden secrets! This Movie totally stole my Heart. Very intense and a great Love Story. It is based upon a book but I m glad that they are so <i>Kind to make the Movies</I><br> <center>Shadows are just as important as the light. </i>
