Jane Eyre (PG-13)

★★★★☆

This is an inspired rendition of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel about an orphaned girl who reinvents herself in 19th-century Britain. Mia Wasikowska gives a wonderfully modulated performance as the film’s title character. Jane takes on work as a governess for a young French girl named Adèle at Thornfield House, which belongs to the handsome Edward (Michael Fassbender). There’s something to savor in every frame of this lush love story.

Cosmopolitan’s artist in residence finds abundance in trash

By Cindi Reed

Artist Steven Spann is working on a painting comprised of waste from the recent Strokes concert at the Cosmopolitan. It’s a swirling mass of found objects integrated into one canvas with the help of some black and white paint. As he points out the shoes thrown onstage, the lost-and-found hoodie, food wrappers from the Green Room, T-shirt order slips and ticket stubs, clusters of hotel guests pause to watch through the glass walls. Which is exactly what they’re supposed to do—although Spann would prefer they come inside for a chat or even donate some trash of their own.
