TV Movie | PG | | Comedy, Romance
A recently orphaned young woman goes to live with eccentric relatives in Sussex, where she sets about improving their gloomy lives.
At one point, Mybug (Stephen Fry) claims that a quote spoken by Flora can be attributed to Jane Austen. Kate Beckinsale (Flora) has twice starred as an Austen heroine: as the title character in Emma (1996) and as Lady Susan Vernon in Love & Friendship (2016).
When I am 53, I hope to write a novel as good as "Persuasion," but in a modern setting.
Flora and Amos walk out of the farmstead to go to church. There are buildings and trees all around. Their conversation is continuous, but the next scene shows them walking straight up through a wide open field of grass with grain fields in the background. There's not a building in sight, and the only trees are in the far distance.
The copyright at the end of this movie is listed as "MCMXV", which translates to 1915. The movie was copyrighted in 1995, so the numerals should read "MCMXCV".
