Quotes

Antoinette Cosway: I loved this place. I loved it with all my heart, and now you've made it a place I hate. I used to think if I lost everything I would still have this, but now I have nothing and I hate it like I hate you and I swear before I die I will show you just how much!

Wonderful and evocative
10 October 2006 | by cennet53See all my reviews

Jane Eyre is currently on UK TV and it was good to see this prequel, even though it was written by another, more contemporary, writer. It managed to convey the sense of mid 1800s Jamaica wonderfully and the imagery was just superb. Both leads were excellent and the sex scenes , while maybe not suitable for under 12s, were portrayed sympathetically and were quite erotic in places

Thoroughly recommended

and Rafe Spall has the sexiest lips ever!!!!!I have never seen him in anything before but I was fascinated by his acting ability. He managed to dominate the screen whatever scene he was in. Rebecca Hall was also good as the doomed Antoinette
