in consequence of the missive, You are right!, penned by Diba
As Anne says to Captain Harville concerning Captain Benwick, "we know what time does in every case of affliction" and I'm sure she was talking from experience. I don't see Anne as being sad, more suffering the occasional pang of regret for what might have been.
Amanda Root's portrayal of Anne was less abject, more timorous and nervous, while I felt Ann Firbank's suggested a women comfortable with herself but with regrets. So I think Ann Firbank's performance the truest to the book, but I enjoy watching all three performances as the actors each bring something different and original to the role which is as it should be.
