Trivia Filmed completely on location, using all natural light. See more »
Goofs While clearing out her things at Kellynch near the beginning of the film, Anne finds a paper boat tucked inside a navy list. If you look closely, you can see that the words written on it come from the letter Captain Wentworth writes to her at the end of the film. It says: "You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again..." See more »

Quotes Captain Harvile: Poor Phoebe, she would not have forgotten him so soon. It was not in her nature.
Anne Elliot: It would not be in the nature of any woman who truly loved.
Captain Harvile: Do you claim that for your sex?
Anne Elliot: We do not forget you as soon as you forget us. We cannot help ourselves. We live at home, quiet, confined, and our feelings prey upon us. You always have business of some sort or other to take you back into the world.
Captain Harvile: I won't allow it to be any more man's nature than women's to be inconstant or to forget those they love or have loved. I believe the reverse. I believe... Let me just observe that all histories are against you, all stories, prose, and verse. I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which did not have something to say on women's fickleness.
Anne Elliot: But they were all written by men.
