I just watched this movie. It was very touching. I found myself embracing every emotion. I laughed at the twins and their boyish antics, felt the fear from the first appearance of Sir Simon, and the deep melancholy of Ginny Otis was very evident. Although, there was the love story between Ginny and the Duke, it was enhanced by the timeless love coupled with the grief Sir Simon had with the loss of his wife. It was a very sweet and moving story. You couldn't help but feel for Sir Simon. I loved the little details thoughout. Gabril the crow, the angel overlooking Elenor's grave in the garden, the cracked bell, the tree, the book matching the fireplace were all well done. Sir Simon and Ginny both found the peace they yearned for and more, Love. This could have fell toward a comedy, but it was truly moving to watch. I encourage all to watch it.
