] The most irritating scene for me is definetly the one in which they pick strawberrys at Box Hill. It wouldn't bother me at all if Box Hill didn't exist, but as it is, I find it ridiculous. There are NO strawberrys at Box Hill. At least not the kind you grow in a garden.
Actually, the strawberries are an example of one of the most irritating things about this film for me - the geography is all wrong!Highbury village looks like no English village I have ever seen!( I did my undergrad thesis on the historical geography of villages in west Surrey) This Highbury looks like a patchwork of villages from all over Dorset, which is exactly what it is! Very pretty, but unreal! The Emma3 highbury is far better, IMHO.They managed to make Lacock look like a cohesive English village from the home counties.
However, I still love the film!
