Yes, yes, yes! The 1997 version with Samantha Morton is fabulous - almost as good as the book! I've watched only once, but look forward watching every few years. Yes, Cirian Hinds (also brilliant in "THe Mayor of Casteridge") is the definitive Rochester (I also concur on your assessment of Colin Firth - another fabulous adaptation). Thank you A&E and Masterpiece Theater!!! I don't know what I'd do without them (maybe read more books!?)!
Have you seen the film version of "Tenant of Wildfell Hall"? I LOVE the book and, unfortunately, the OMaha library system does not own it, nor is it at the local video-rental stores, but the IMBD review is excellent. I may be forced to join Netflix to access it . . .
