      I adore this film, which is my favourite cinematic version of one of my very favourite novels. Among other details, the muted & subtle exquisiteness of the 1840s costumes gave me such visual satisfaction… there’s kind of an elusive, “je ne sais quoi” quality to the beauty of their austere colours and design. I’m so glad you enjoyed them too! 🙂
