Royal Navy captain Wentworth was haughtily turned down eight years ago as suitor of pompous baronet Sir Walter Elliot's daughter Anne, despite true love. Now he visits their former seaside country estate, rented by his brother-in-law, admiral Croft, so the financially stressed baronet can afford a fashionable, cheaper residence in trendy Bath. First the former lovers meet again on the estate, where they feel vibes again, but neither dares admit them until it seems too late. Yet the truth becomes clear, both have moved, but meet again in Bath.
A new adaptation of Jane Austen's classic

The green striped gown with velvet Spencer jacket Julia Davis
(Elizabeth Elliot) wears at Kellynch Hall is the same costume Anna Chancellor
(Caroline Bingley) wears at Netherfield Hall in Pride and Prejudice
(1995). However, the bottom portion of the gown, cut on the bias, has been removed for the later film. This gown also appears in Vanity Fair
(1998) worn by Vicki Pepperdine
(Ann Dobbin) in the park scenes, and by an extra at the London party where Annabella Milbanke meets Byron in Byron
(2003). The Spencer also appears, without the striped gown, in Little Dorrit
(2008), worn by Emma Pierson
as Fanny Dorrit. See more
