I have seen all of the deleted scenes, thanks to Bilbo’s tips for YouTube, and MissJaneAustenfan for providing us the excellent deleted scenes at YouTube. These are the two YouTube clips and my very short comments for each deleted scenes, due to time constrains.
1. Extended Church Scene: cute brother George! And it’s rather funny to see some people fell asleep when Mr. Austen gave the sermon… (definitely a rather lengthy sermon that Edward Ferrars would not give!)
2. Wisley's First Proposal: Jane’s curtsey was so cute (and very Anne, for that matter, in a good way!)
3. Henry Embarrasses Jane: I wish it was not deleted, for Henry-Jane interaction is always very interesting.
4. Jane Writes to Cassandra: I see Anne’s handwriting was truly loyal to Jane’s style here. And we can see Mrs. Edward Austen’s late pregnancy there as well!
5. Mrs. Austen Reprimands Jane: Oh, love it when Mrs. Austen forbade Jane to see Tom again, and Jane’s reaction. And now finally I understood where the ‘Heart disturbed’ came from. Mr. Austen was the one who said it!
6. Wisley Learns to Dance: so cute! I don’t mind it being there! Okay, it's not so related, but it's funny.
7. Jane Plots in the Rain: nice interactions between Jane-Eliza-Henry.
8. Lady Gresham Invites Jane to Dinner: Maggie Smith’s Lady Gresham is always pleasing to see, though I understand why this one is deleted (for it did not give many to the plot)
9. Jane Learns of Tom's Marriage: Bittersweet, sad, though Tom was not married yet at that time. Again, I wish it was not deleted. Later, we can also see the sisterhood between Jane and Cass.
10. Under a Rainy Tree: Again, the sisterhood; they should have let it in the movie. Plus, it reminds me of Marianne and Elinor Dashwood as they walked down the hill after Marianne’s illness.
11. Mrs. Lefroy Comes to Tea: this is seriously the reminiscent of Letter 17 November 1798 when Jane wrote to Cassandra about Mrs. Anne Lefroy visiting Steventon and told a very bit about Tom Lefroy’s visit (‘Mrs. Lefroy did come last Wednesday, and the Harwoods came likewise, but very considerately paid their visit before Mrs. Lefroy's arrival, with whom, in spite of interruptions both from my father and James, I was enough alone to hear all that was interesting, which you will easily credit when I tell you that of her nephew she said nothing at all, and of her friend very little. She did not once mention the name of the former to me, and I was too proud to make any inquiries; but on my father's afterwards asking where he was, I learnt that he was gone back to London in his way to Ireland, where he is called to the Bar and means to practise.’).
12. George is Left Behind: touchy, so George also KNEW that Jane would run away with Tom. But of course he knew, he was there in the forest!
13. Extended Recital Scene: it’s rather interesting to see how, in the end, the soprano also solemnly clapped to Jane Austen and how many people actually rather recognised Jane as someone important or famous. It’s subtle, but lovely; I think it is my most favourite deleted scene of all. Perhaps they should leave it in the movie.
So, overall, buying the
