“The fact that it´s difficult to talk to someone who you´re in love with is brilliantly highlighted in the etiquette of Austen´s period, where you actually, physically, weren´t allowed to talk to them alone, except for when you´re dancing. That´s the only time you were alone. So to be able to use those dances in that way was a great way of forming collisions between the characters.”
(Joe Wright, Director)
“We had such a wonderful summer because we were allowed to indulge all our romantic fantasies and live in this very enchanted world for a while.”
