The white muslin frock with red patterned overdress worn by Eleanor Methven, as Mrs. Lefroy, is the same one Brenda Blethyn, as Mrs. Bennet, wears in Pride & Prejudice (2005), in the Meryton scene when the Bennets learn that Mr. Bingley has returned to Netherfield Hall.
Laverton Fair. Vastly entertaining. Monstrous good idea, Jane.
Tom Lefroy: Yes, Miss Austen, not exactly your usual society, I'd say.
Jane Austen: Show a little imagination, Mr. Lefroy.
At the end of the film, in a dolly shot showing Lefroy's back, Jane closes the book and puts her hands on it. Then after Lefroy begins to applaud, in the final closeup shot, she closes that book again.
