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" and believes in behaving with propriety and thoughtfulness, while Marianne represents "sensibility" and basks in her own emotions. Both women, however, experience confusion when their lovers, seemingly on the verge of proposing marriage, spurn them. For director Ang Lee, the film marks a break from his Father Knows Best trilogy, which examined the problems of the contemporary Taiwanese family. Many people questioned whether an Asian director could handle an English period film. Lee answered those questions with a gorgeous film that both captures the nuances of Austen's novel and proves that Lee is a first-rate director capable of tackling any material. Featuring Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman, among others, the stellar cast inspired Lee to flatteringly exclaim, "Can everyone in England act?"

  • austen lover

    This is not a very good version of S&Sensibility, not very well acted, and the timing is off. Hugh Grant was very disappointing, and so was Emma Thompson. There was no chemistry between the 2 actors. Stick to the BBC version instead, that is a much superior adaptation.

    I went to school in England. Everynight we watched these movies in the basement of our dorm, a former abbey (no ghosts) and fell in love with the stories. You will too. I watch these on nights when TV gets too gruesome, dark or silly.

    This is not a fast-paced rock 'em, sock 'em movie that my husband enjoys (he fell asleep half way through the movie), but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a good movie for a girl's night.

  • Adaptation from the novel

    Very well made movie. Beware that it's an adaptation from the novel, not matching the novel EXACTLY.
