Sorry for the delayed response, I only saw the 2011 version a few days ago so I had to wait to see that to be able to respond! My favourite will always be the 2006 version with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens. I personally find that all other adaptations can’t even really be compared to that version. I enjoyed the 2011 version and the darker take on the more gothic elements of the story, but I felt that the same passion and chemistry just wasn’t there between Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender. Although their performances were good I didn’t feel that they portrayed Jane and Rochester in the way that I imagine them to be. I don’t mind the 1996 version but the 2006 miniseries is definitely the outstanding adaptation in my eyes :)
