The Post About The Rabbit Recommends v.96

Each week or so I post a readable or watchable and/or a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens after my recommendation. Ignore, embrace, debate.

Earlier volumes of The Rabbit Recommends can be found here.

Read & Watch
Have I mentioned my love for all things Jane Austen? Well, the Brontë sisters are not far behind in my affection. One of my favorite novels and literary heroines is Jane Eyre. Set in early nineteenth-century England, it tracks the journey of an orphaned young woman who becomes the governess at Thornfield Hall, an estate owned by the mysterious Mr. Rochester. I think it sets itself apart by featuring a female protagonist who is thoughtful and articulate and sees herself as more than a societal pawn. Jane balances a deep trust in God with a remarkable self-reliance. Best part? She's not waiting to be rescued. Bestest part? Since it's a "classic," it's free on all major e-readers. 

There have been 12 English film and TV adaptations of Jane Eyre since 1934. Having seen 8 of them, I think the one released this year is by far the best. Visually stunning direction by Cary Fukunaga and the perfect casting of Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender. FASSBENDERFANFOREVER. I'm not the only who fancied it - the Rotten Tomatoes rating is 83%. DVD releases August 16. You can also rent it online at Amazon and iTunes.

I've been a Mat Kearney fan since I discovered singer/songwriters in vee tees and skinny jeans. His new album, Young Love, is a snapshot of his 1st year of marriage. Rabbit Sidebar: Matt met his wife at Anthropologie. Where should I be shopping? His first single, Hey Mama, was one of my summer anthems. Now I also adore the tracks She Got The Honey, Rochester, and Sooner or Later (featured above.)
