Lady Susan Vernon takes up temporary residence at her in-laws' estate and, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica -- and herself too, naturally.
Whenever the scene changes to Lady Susan's town house, the progress of two masons may be observed as they renovate the stones comprising her front wall.
Lady Susan Vernon:
Ah, mortality. Our mortality and that of others, but most particularly our own, is the hardest and most intractable hand life can deal us.
One of the pieces of music - Beethoven's cello sonata 3 in A major was composed in 1808, so a decade after the time the film was set.
At the conclusion of the end credits, there is a line encouraging viewers to read the novel, "in which Lady Susan Vernon is thoroughly vindicated."
