I almost feel like I'm betraying Byatt to wish for a film of this book, but you put it well: even without the richness of language it's a terrific story!
What are your casting choices? Our discussion on Roland made me think about casting him, and I lit upon Noah Wylie. (Okay, he's not English, if Gwyneth could do it, but he could). I think he has the right kind of nonthreatening appeal, and his quizzical eyes and ingratiating smile are not unlike Byatt's description of Roland.
I once suggested CF for Ash and was shot down because the consensus was that he was too young, although I disagree. Frankly, I think one could successfully cast ANY film simply by drawing on the P&P2 cast, so I am "prejudiced."
