Juggling in Movies

Persuasion (1995)

[Amanda Root, Ciarán Hinds, Susan Fleetwood, Corin Redgrave, Fiona Shaw]

Eight years earlier, Anne, the daughter of a financially troubled aristocratic family, was persuaded to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a young seaman, who, though promising, had poor family connections. When her father rents out the family estate, Anne is thrown into company with Frederick, now a rich and successful Captain, and a highly eligible bachelor. Whom will he marry? One of Anne's sister's husband's sisters? Or will he and Anne rekindle the old flame?

Near the end there was a small parade that goes through town with several strolling jugglers. There was one juggler doing a three ball cascade, a tall juggler doing five apples, and another doing machetes. There are two nice shots of the juggling, one from the side as it passed and another from the front as the parade turned a corner.
