This is the British made BBC adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility and stars Irene Richard and Tracey Childs as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, two sisters who are complete opposites when it comes to their personalties. Elinor is the more sensible, pratical sister and Marianne is the romantic dreamer and very impetuous. I liked this version. I liked the theatrical remake with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet but to my surprise I found myself liking this version better! BTW: Both Irene Richard and Tracey Childs are in the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice that starred Jennifer Garvie and David Rintoul as Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. Irene played Charlotte Lucas, and Tracey played Georgianna Darcy (Darcy's little sister)

I was lucky enough to have borrowed a copy so that I could return the one I ordered intact. The storyline strays too far off the main plot, and in far too many places. This made the story hard to follow, which is highly unusual for a Jane Austen novel. The point of the situation was missed multiple times. Most of the dialog had nothing to do with the story. This one is only for those who have never read the book, nor ever intend to. If you've read the book, this BBC rendition will make you cry for Jane Austen's sake.
