Jane Eyre: the lonely edition


So, here is another weird fact about me: in a true Julie Andrews, "raindrops on roses" and so on fashion, I tend to watch Jane Eyre adaptation movies whenever I am feeling lonely or sad.
 I have about eight different versions of the story, and I sit on my laptop for hours rewatching the scene when Jane leaves the room full of Rochester's guests, and he followes her and asks her "how do you do" over and over again, comparing accents, and dresses, and trying to judge which Jane is prettiest. 
Then I open my book and read the same scene for the hundredth time, and spend the rest of the day banging my head against any surface that I can find, because not one of these movies has got it right.
I know, I have a problem.

These days I was wacthing the latest movie, the 2011 one. 

At some point, I must have paused the screen and pressed print, because suddenly these popped up in my Photoshop window:











This last 'blue' one is kind of my favourite. 
What do you think?
Feel free to right-click on them and copy and use them, only please credit would be nice. 

Is Jane Eyre your comfort read too? Or is it something else?
