Director Cary Fukunaga Explains “Jane Eyre!" I Love This Movie!

Uploaded on Monday 14 March 2011


Have I told you how much I love interviewing film directors? If you want to know more about the aspects of filmmaking, who best to turn to but the filmmaker herself or himself? Cary Fukunaga, coming off of the critical success of “Sin Nombre” decided to work on the period film, “Jane Eyre.”

I sat down with the director to talk about:

*** How he managed to balance romance and gothic (hard to do!) in “Jane Eyre”
*** Why did he decide to follow-up “Sin Nombre” with “Jane Eyre?”
*** The similarities between his two movies
*** How he directed his two leads, Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender
*** Was he inspired by “The Shining?”
*** Fukunaga adored the “Jane Eyre” version starring Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine. How did his new film compare to the older take?
