Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Captain Harville and Anne Elliot discuss whether men or women are the most inconstant in love the camera continues to switch between a closer shot of the two and a more distant shot to include Captain Wentworth. In one of the more distant shots (while Captain Harville discusses the feeling of leaving behind family) you can see Anne is the one speaking however Captain Harville's voice is heard.See more »

Best Jane Austen adaptation of late!, 18 July 2000
Author: stephanie passalacqua from Effingham, IL

This has got to be the most watchable Jane Austen adaptation since the recent influx. Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds are simply the best at conveying unrequited love. One is not blindsided by the big names and distracting beauty of those that have filled the roles of more recent Austen films, and that's how it should be. The performances by Sophie Thompson (Emma's sister), Phoebe Nicholls (remember "Brideshead Revisited"?), and Corin Redgrave is enough to make this movie recommendable, but the 2 main characters are absolutely superb and sympathetic without being sappy or gratuitous. The other supporting cast is phenomenal; what one expects from a nice little English film. Cinematography and soundtrack are fitting as well. Highly recommended!
