Gorgeously shot & well acted, this 2008 version stays close to the book - with all its difficult pauses & important things left unsaid. It seemed perhaps a bit too modern to have the Miss Eliot marathon scene near the end - perhaps this was meant to heighten the drama....

Captain Wentworth (voiceover of his letter to Anne, as she runs searching for him): "Miss Elliot, I can bear this no longer. You pierce my soul. I'm half agony, half hope. Unjust I may have been. Weak and resentful I have been -- but never inconstant. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it eight years ago. I have loved none but you. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone I think and plan. Have you not seen this? I can hardly write. I must go, uncertain of my fate. A word... A look, would be enough... Only, tell me that I am... Tell me not that I am too late. That such precious feelings are gone forever..."
