A wonderfully charming film full of highlights by some of the greatest actors to ever walk the Earth (including Kate Winslet, Tom Wilkinson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, and Alan Rickman), along with lovely directing by Ang Lee. A great story provided by the ponderous work of Jane Austen brings to light many of the problems associated with relationships of the time and how relevant they are to relationships now. A recommended find.

Okay, I'm a closet Jane Austen fan. I was forced to read Pride and Prejudice in my Novels class, and Idiscovered that I loved it. I recently decided to read Sense and Sensibility (outside of class) and upon finishing the book, my Novels teacher let me borrow the movie. I actually enjoyed it more than the book, which is rare. Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet are great as Elinor and Marianne. Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman are also outstanding. Overall it was an amazing film.

It's unfortunate a minor miscast can sway a critic's review, still Sense and Sensibility is a well-constructed drama though the humor was not that imminent and a certain actor that this reviewer …
