    ITEM#: 2509913

    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?"

      This movie is a great classic love story and one of my all time favorites. Overstock has great prices and the shipping is affordable and I get my orders very quickly. Thanks, Overstock!

      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 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.

    • A very good movie.
      Verified Purchase

      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 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.
