Overview

Ten years before Jane Austen's novel Sense and Sensibility was transformed into a lavish theatrical feature by director Ang Lee, the property was adapted as a rather less lavish but no less entertaining British TV miniseries. Irene Richard and Tracy Childs starred as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, two attractive sisters from a prominent British family. When the Dashwoods go broke after the death of their father, the flighty Marianne and the more reserved (and, need we add, more intelligent) Elinor go on an exhaustive search for proper, and properly wealthy, husbands. Sense and Sensibility was served up in three 60-minute portions by the BBC.

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.
