* AdaptationalContextChange: In the novel, Julia's marriage to Rex Mottram is in many ways an act of rebellion, as it happens over her family's objections. In the movie, the family ''want'' her to marry Rex, and agreeing to do so makes Julia seem much more weak and dominated.
* DyeingForYourArt: Averted. Hayley Atwell was asked to lose weight for the role of Julia (who, to be fair, is described in the novel as fashionably waifish) but EmmaThompson [[http://nymag.com/thecut/2008/02/emma_thompson_fights_miramaxs_1.html put her foot down]] upon finding out, threatening to leave the production unless Atwell was allowed to maintain her natural weight.
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Guy!]]: In the mini-series, Sebastian's elder brother is [[Series/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Arthur Dent]].
** And Charles's father is John Gielgud.
** In the 2008 film, [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Ozymandias]] is Charles Ryder.
*** And in the 1981 television adaptation, he's [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar.]]
** Sebastian is [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Apollo]] in the radio version.
