Trivia:
The source novel incorporated a lot of Ashford's mis-spellings, and the film does this also - in the title, and in some of the signs which can be seen in the palace scenes (e.g. 'Prince of Whales').See more »
Goofs:
Anachronisms: At the public function Ethel very much wants to go to meet Earls, Lords and Ladies, there is a woman who sings the Australian Kookaburra song. The song was written in 1932. This movie takes place in Victorian England.See more »
Quotes:
Lord Bernard Clark:Oh, tell me you love me also, Ethel!
Ethel Monticue:I do love you also, Bernard. I love you madly. I love you with passion. You are to me like a heathen god, with your manly form and your handsome, flashing face.

Unexpected Gem, 3 March 2008
Author: jbkatie from United States

Costumes: Fabulous Sets: Beautiful Color: Wonderful Casting: Excellent Script: Enchanting Plot: Bittersweet I stumbled upon this little movie quite by accident, and was utterly charmed and enthralled. To think that a 9-year old child wrote the book in 12 days is a marvel in itself - to know that the director did his best to remain true to the book while crafting a film that would appeal to his audience (adults) was a treat. Sly, moving, and innocent all at the same time, it's a movie I would recommend to anyone wanting a happy diversion from the rot foisted upon us on a daily basis.

The production standards are top-notch, and the acting, particularly the character of Mr. Salteena, is extremely well done.

BBC did a phenomenal job.
