Emma Thompson is just the best. This is a very emotional subject handled with wit and aplomb. Unforgettable.

I love all Jane Austen stories. This film is enjoyable, even though Emma Thompson was at least a decade too old to play this lead role. And Hugh Grant? Ugh! The rest of the cast -- especially Kate Winslet -- were excellent which makes it well worth owning.

This is one I like to watch over and over. However, Eleonore (in the book) was only 17 and Emma Thompson is not.

This is great for the kids --and it's not bad for the adults as well. At least you're not watching Barney with the kids! Emma Thompson is great. It's a modern day Mary Poppins. Definitely great for the kids' movie collection. Movies, music and such do tend to take a bit longer to arrive from Overstock than other merchandise. Don't know why that is...

Austen had a way of developing her characters (especially matriarchal figures) that is humorous for one's ability to relate to such. Even knowing where things will ultimately head, one "enjoys the ride" to the conclusion. Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson, and Hugh Grant shine in this understated, controlled version of a true literary classic.

I first saw this movie on its opening night in a packed house at the Denver Starz Film Festival. I had no idea what it was about, but the star quality of Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson assured me that I would not be disappointed. And I wasn't. Hoffman's Harvey is painful to watch at times, as he makes one blunder after another, distancing him further from his estranged daughter at her wedding. But he's charming too, especially when he finally has a conversation with Thompson's character in an airport bar. Its hard to take your eyes off the unlikely chemistry between these two fine actors.

I love this movie. It is a wonderful story about a family of sisters in England. Emma Thompson does an ourstanding job as the oldest sister. It is a beautiful love story and well worth watching.

Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play is magnificently brought to life through Emma Thompson's brilliant and captivating performance. This film will bring you to tears.

Prompt delivery, perfect condition. Thanks, Overstock! This movie is based on a Jane Austen novel, the screenplay is by the very talented Emma Thompson, the cast is all-star, and the director is Ang Lee; there's no way this movie wouldn't be great. With Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon--well, he's the icing on the cake.
