A biographical portrait of a pre-fame Jane Austen and her romance with a young Irishman.
The pink patterned muslin gown Anna Maxwell Martin (Cassandra Austen) wears during the engagement party scene, is the same gown worn by Carey Mulligan (Kitty Bennet) in Pride & Prejudice (2005). Mulligan wears it during the scene in which the younger Bennet sisters visit Netherfield Hall to check on the progress of Jane Bennet, who is ill.
A metropolitan mind may be less susceptible to extended juvenile self-regard.
When Jane and Tom are walking toward the boxing match, a blond soldier dressed in a red uniform walks in front of them smiling then passes towards the fight. A couple of seconds later, Jane and Tom have barely taken a few steps and the same character is repeated but they are not saying the same things.
