Larkrise to Candleford (TV series rather than movie). 

If you can't get hold of the show, the books it is based on are lovely to read also.

Cranford is another good series.

Dr Thorne
Wives & Daughters 

Cranford

Jane Eyre (there are several--I like the one with Ruth Wilson best, followed by Mia Wasikowska)

Forsyte Saga

Daniel Deronda

Emma (Romola Garai is the best one)
Persuasion

Mansfield Park (Julia Joyce, not Frances O'Conner)

Middlemarch

(I have no idea why my spacing is wonky.  I can't fix it)

More Austen versions:

Persuasion (1995) -- with Amanda Root

Sense and Sensibility (2008) -- short mini-series, almost as lovely as the Emma Thompson film

Emma (1996) -- with Kate Beckinsale

Pride and Prejudice -- 1995 TV series with Colin Firth; 2005 Keira Knightly movie; 1940 film with Greer Garson and Lawrence Olivier

Austen in contemporary settings:

Bride and Prejudice  (2004) -- modern India/bollywood musical version; not the best acting, but oh so very fun and colorful!

Austenland (2013) -- I love this sweet, humorous, gentle poke at Austen while still honoring Austen and romance

along the lines of Austen:

Becoming Jane (2007)

Jane Eyre (2011)

Little Women (1994)

David Copperfield (1999)

Little Dorritt (2008)

A Room With A View (1985)

Enchanted April (1991)

Babette's Feast (1987)

Cold Comfort Farm (1995) -- quirky, humorous, 1920s setting, based on the novel

Only You (1994)

Dear Frankie (2004)

Much Ado About Nothing -- both the 1993 Emma Thompson version and 2012 Joss Whedon version

along the lines of Hornblower:

Master and Commander (2003)

Robin Hood (2010) -- with Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett

Count of Monte Cristo (2002) -- with Guy Pearce and Jim Caviezal -- totally changes the end of the story, but romantic adventure fun

John Adams (2008) -- TV series

A Knight's Tale (2001) -- medieval honor, with a "rock opera" sound track -- a total guilty pleasure romantic adventure
