Great Moments In Movie Shelves #26

"Library. These are mostly foreign."

"Indeed. Magnificent."

"I've never liked the smell of books."

"The dust perhaps."

Is there any quicker way to make the audience for a Jane Austen movie know the character they're watching is meant to be a villainess than by having her literally turn up her nose at a gorgeous library? I mean she might as well have scooped out sweet Emma Thompson's eyes with gardening shears. (Seriously though Harriet Walter just makes the best bitch.)

Happy birthday, Ang Lee!
