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?

Watched only the first two minutes. When Jane Austen starts with a half nude sex scene, I am not watching.

I love this adaption! Way better than the Emma Thompson version for two reasons:
1. It just is.
2.Dan Stevens plays Edward Ferrars!!! AKA- Matthew Crawley ;)

This adaptation is so well done and so much better than the Emma Thompson movie. All characters are cast perfectly. The scenery is beautiful. The story was fully developed and clear. It's a must see if you enjoy this book.

Having never read the book or watched any other version of this story. I didn't know what to expect. I really really enjoyed this movie. I couldn't however get into the second disc Miss Austen Regrets, probably because I have seen those actors in other movies and they didn't seem to fit properly.

BBC Masterpiece Theater at its Absolute Finest. However, the ending on the first disc is so abrupt, that watching the second disc with a complete new story is a downer.

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.

Nothing has proved him unworthy; nor has anything declared him indifferent to me.— I have had to contend against the unkindness of his sister, and the insolence of his mother; and have suffered the punishment of an attachment, without enjoying its advantages.
