Trivia

The green striped gown with velvet Spencer jacket worn an extra at the London party where Annabella Milbanke meets Byron is the same costume Anna Chancellor (Caroline Bingley) wears at Netherfield Hall in Pride and Prejudice (1995), Julia Davis (Elizabeth Elliot) at Kellynch Hall in Persuasion (2007), and Vicki Pepperdine (Ann Dobbin) in the park scenes in Vanity Fair (1998). The Spencer also appears, without the striped gown, in Little Dorrit (2008), worn by Emma Pierson as Fanny Dorrit. See more »

Quotes

Annabella Milbanke: What did you mean when you said you've done evil?
Lord Byron: Nothing, I was bored.

The only decent Byron adaption I've seen so far
6 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is the only film depiction of Byron I've seen that attempts to portray him as the clever, funny man that he was rather than some cartoon goth with a big floaty cloak, eyeliner and an evil, reverberating laugh. Other films tend to be simple, self-indulgent perpetuations of Byron's partially self-made myth and this film is the only one I have seen so far that shows something of what was beneath: Regency society seen through Lord Byron's eyes as he rips the piss. Jonny Lee Miller carries off the parallel aspects of Byron's personality with aplomb, making him smug and petulant while unavoidably charismatic and likable. Of course it's still all conjecture, as is emphasised at the start of the film, but as far as Byron films go, there's nothing out there to touch this.
