Cary Fuku­naga an­nounced him­self with the 2009 film Sin Nom­bre, and with this change of di­rec­tion proved he is a young di­rec­tor of sub­stance. This is the twen­tysome­thing ver­sion of Char­lotte Bronte’s novel made for the screen, with Aus­tralian Mia Wasikowska do­ing the heroine proud, the fan­tas­tic Michael Fass­ben­der as Rochester and Judi Dench as Mrs Fair­fax. All the rest is there in spades – the gloomy at­mos­phere, mys­tery and sex­ual ten­sion. Rare Eyre.
