Added DiffLines:

* EvilWearsBlack: Averted. Ada wears black dresses through most of the film, making her look all the most pale and ghostly. Which only further fuels gossips about her, ''especially'' after she ripped her white wedding dress.

* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Baines returns the piano to Ada before their arrangement is over, since he [[spoiler: doesn't want her to feel like a whore]] and wants her to like him instead of being squicked by his mere presence. And while "beloved" isn't the right word for it, [[spoiler:Alisdair ultimately decides to let them be together for her happiness rather than let their toxic marriage continue]].

* TranslationConvention: Ada and her [[UsefulNotes/SignedLanguage signs]] are usually not translated for the viewer and left up to Flora to explain to the other characters. Flora is often not very faithful to the original message. Then, when Ada goes to Baines after he returned the piano to her, there are subtitles to her signs when she's scolding Flora. [[ViewersAreMorons As if it wasn't obvious without them]].
