I was extremely skeptical heading into this version, because the 1995 adaptation happens to be in my top 5 films of all time. Needless to say, it wasn't going to be easy to impress me. This version was absolutely wonderful! The scenery and score were breathtaking, and the storyline was more faithful to the book than other versions have been. The actors also delivered amazing performances. Hattie Morahan "Elinor" particularly impressed me-- she was the *perfect* Elinor and will blow you away in the second half of the film! BBC got it right with this version!

If I could give this adaptation 0 stars, I would. Elinor showed her feelings too easily, Edward wasn't exceedingly awkward, Fanny wasn't malicious enough, they totally boched the final scene with Willoghby, Marianne got over Willoughby's leaving too quickly, and beginning an Austen adaptation with a seduction scene just killed it. If you plan to see a decent adaptation of this novel, see the film with Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant. Though it doesn't include all of the details mentioned in the novel, Emma Thompson captured Austen's novel in an extremely beautiful way. Watch that. DO NOT WATCH THIS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO TEAR YOUR HAIR OUT!!!!!!!!!!

    Not the best

    I saw this on PBS a few weeks ago and was not impressed. The entire cast completely lacks chemistry. If you want to watch Sense and Sensibility I would recommend the version Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, and Hugh Grant instead.

    Sense & Sensibility

    The story and acting is good. Mariann and Elinor were good. The romance between Marianne and Willouhby was also good. What about Elinor? Her surpressed feelings were barely acknowledged - the romance between her and Edward Ferrars was dry and unfeeling. Overall, it was diappointing.
