Not only do this movie and An Ideal Husband (1999) feature Jeremy Northam as a character named "Sir Robert", but his performances in those movies also won him the same two awards (Evening Standard British Film Award's "Best Actor" and ALFS Award's "British Actor of the Year").
Sir Robert Morton:
I wept today because right had been done.
Catherine Winslow: Not justice?
Sir Robert Morton: No, not justice. Right. Easy to do justice. Very hard to do right.
The corset that Catherine Winslow wears under her dress clearly appears and disappears between shots in her last scenes with Sir Robert.
