Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve when she falls in love with the charming but unsuitable John Willoughby, ignoring her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behavior leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Elinor, sensitive to social convention, struggles to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Will the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love?

My favorite version of Sense & Sensibility. Lovely cinematography & soundtrack. Stars Matthew from Downton Abbey.
Watch Included bonus dvd: Miss Austen Regrets - an interesting look into Jane Austen's life. Stars Lord Grantham from Downtown Abbey.

Not our favourite "Sense and Sensibility," but it's still good. And the "Miss Austin Regrets" is a very interesting biopic.

excellent adaptation of jane austen's sense and sensibility. definitely outshines the hollywood version with emma thompson. bbc delivers great acting, as usual, cinematography, etc.

Definitely one of the best screen adaptations of JA's Sense and Sensibility and my favourite so far.
The scenery, the acting, the music, the details...everything.

I did enjoy Emma Thompson's version, because she was always upfront about her 'creative liberties' and that it wasn't meant to mirror the novel 100%. :)
