The story of two sisters who are torn between marrying for love (sensibility) or money and position (sense) and how their choices don't exactly turn out the way they thought and hoped. A stunning and lavish adaptation of Jane Austen's book by Emma Thompson, who also starred. They take more than a few liberties with the source material but the result is one of the best movies ever made. This is my ... read more

'Sense and Sensibility' is a very good classic, thanks to its interesting plot, solid acting (especially Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet), wonderful sets and costumes and some classic dialogue with Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant, it deserved its Oscar nominations (and also some wins)

A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. In fact, even though I have studied English litterature in college, I have to confess that I have actually never read anything written by Jane Austen (in fact, l haven't even read anything from Shakespeare either which is even more shameful...). On the other hand, I have seen many movies adapted from h... read more

Description: Director Ang Lee and screenwriter-actress Emma Thompson bring Jane Austen's 1811 novel about ... Full Descriptionthe romantic dalliances of two sisters in rural England to the screen in this acclaimed film. Actress Emma Thompson both wrote and stars in this adaptation of Jane Austen's SENSE AND SENSIBILITY--a novel that perceptively examines the social manners and laws of early-19th-century Britain. Set in the English countryside, the film follows the loves and heartaches of sisters Elinor (Thompson) and Marianne Dashwood (Kate Winslet). The two have extremely divergent approaches to life: Elinor represents "sense&quo ... (more)

Great book, beautiful film!

“I love Jane Austen, and I love period dramas. This film, while a little too long, was perfect for me. I loved it when I first saw it a year ago, and I still love it now. Sense and Sensibility is a great book by Miss Austen, and this film does the book justice, in my personal opinion. The film looks gorgeous, the camera-work, the locations and the costumes. The script sparkled with wit, subtlety, romance and heartache, especially when Marianne goes out into the rain and gets herself ill. The music is lovely also. The performances were exceptional. Period-film veteran Emma Thompson is lovely here as Elinor Dashwood, and Kate Winslet matches her perfectly in a beautifully-blended portrayal of the tragic Marianne. As for the men, they were very good too. Hugh Grant was exceedingly charming as ” read more
