Wide Sargasso Sea

Based on Jean Rhys' "prequel" to Charlotte Bronte's 1847 novel JANE EYRE, this haunting and beautiful film explores the mystery of Rochester's first wife, the tragic, attic-dwelling figure from Bronte's novel. When Rochester (Nathaniel Parker) marries Antoinette Cosway (Karina Lombard), a Jamaican woman, their fiery passion and her nightmarish visions of the past drive her to madness and him to withdraw in an attempt to regain his sense of self.
