    I don't recommend anyone to see the movie before reading the book. This book of Emily Brontë is a timeless masterpiece. I really hope it's not a film like "The Picture of Dorian Gray" was - filled cr*p.

    Her father is called John Reid so I'm not sure if one can call her Polish, either.

    OH MY GOD, they chose a bloody Polack to play JANE EYRE??? and not just any Polack too, a mongrel potato-faced Jewish gypsy Polack! I admit, it's better than casting a Negroid in a movie about Norse mythology, but still, WTBF???

    BOYCOTT!

    Yes, very much agreed. I don't understand this, there are plenty of English actresses who could have done a GREAT job portraying Jane Eyre, and this Wasilkowska girl isn't pretty, nor is she even a good actress. She is an HORRIBLE actress, she DESTROYED that Alice in Wonderland movie with her poor acting. Her face is an abominable combination of 1/8 Asian, 1/16 Congoid, and 1/2 Jewish potato, ugly even compared to most of the ugly Polish girls I knew in high school. There is something more to it, they want to intentionally pick ugly people to portray Brits to belittle us, to undermine our ethnic superiority. I bet that potato-face has Jewish blood too.



    There are nuances that hint at Mongoloid, Congoid, and predominantly Jewish ancestry in that pretty little face.

    Well, at least there aren't any Negroids, Arabs, Mongoloids, or explicit Jews cast in the movie... by the way, Imogen Poots, strange as she herself looks, should have been Jane Eyre, and this Wasikowska thing should have been cast as some sort of a maid, or perhaps Edward's mentally ill wife. That would have been a great role for her, she could just do the acting with her appearance, no need for spitting out her broken-English dribble.

    If you really want to see this movie, I recommend seeing the one with Ciaran Hinds (Edward) and Samantha Morton (Jane). It's a made for TV movie, but it's good, and most importantly it has only genuine British actors in the cast.

    EDIT: Who is her father John Reid? Sounds Germanic, but the girl herself looks less than half-White. Could he perhaps have Australoid roots? Can anybody find any pictures or info on her parents?

    Well, Poots herself looks very, very Polish. You didn't get people who look like this in 19th century northern England. I don't see any now, excluding first generation Polish immigrants:

    Reid is a Scottish name. He's probably old stock Australian.

    Poots is English isn't she? Strange, her subtly recessed chin and long nose give her a quasi Armenoid look.
