I finally got around to watching this today. Very lovely and, yes, sad (as history would have it). I'm a huge fan of Ben Whishaw after seeing his recent portrayal of Sebastian Flyte. Fanny's wardrobe (as she was known to be a talented seamstress) is beautiful and just adds to the layers of "pretty" in this film. If you're a fan of literary biopics or British period pieces, then you must watch it!
