I loooved Ms. Ehle in Pride and Prejudice. Just saw it for the first time a week ago. Her and Firth's performance got me to read Austen for the first time. Can't believe I've missed out! Thanks Ms. Ehle!

I'm sure she's heard it a million times, but I have loved Ms. Ehle since "Pride and Prejudice".
This film sounds lovely and filming in Kerala must have been quite the experience.
