I've always liked the "acting" in this scene. Dessa's journey eventually gets darker, but there's a playfulness to this early stuff, even when it's very serious business for the characters.

When the book was first released, it wasn't clear to some people that this isn't the man she's looking for. It was tricky to find the balance between making it look enough like the villain in her memory to fool her, but enough unlike him to signal the audience that she's made a mistake. So, to be clear: this is not the man who took Dessa's brother.
