Did I Accidentally Change the Channel to PBS?
Solid if uninspired adaptation of the Jane Austen novel.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with this film, but it's all a bit
dull, a Masterpiece Theatre version of the story that would be as at
home on PBS as on a big movie screen. Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet
play the two sisters, one with sense and the other with sensibility,
while Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman play the love interests. There's some
nice footage of the English countryside, and it all goes down ever so
pleasantly, but you're forgiven if you find yourself nodding off now
Directed by (of all people) Ang Lee.

Overrated, but enjoyable
Sense and Sensibility may be my least favorite Jane Austen novel, but
that doesn't mean I don't love it. This movie was a pretty good
adaptation, but I think it is overrated. Maybe it is to do with the
fact that I think the book is slightly weak in comparison to her
others. Or maybe it's just the film. I liked some of the changes Emma
Thompson made, such as enhancing the character of Margaret, showing
Elinor and Edward falling in love, etc. Most of the actors were great,
including Alan Rickman (though his character was definitely made sexier
than his boring book self), Greg Wise, and Kate Winslet. But I didn't
really like Emma as Elinor. At 36, she was way too old for the role
(Elinor is only 19) and while I know that can be seen to enhance her
"sense" and show how she is mature and everything, I think it took away
from the character. For Elinor to have those qualities at such a young
age, really says more about her, I think. I also didn't like how she
wrote that it was illegal for women to inherit in her screenplay. Why
did she have to deliberately give the audience the wrong idea about
inheritance in those days? Hugh Grant's Edward is also changed from the
book, stuttering all the time. In spite of this, I think he is a more
sympathetic character than he was in the book. I was not a fan of his
at all. However, this is still a good adaptation and I don't want to
discourage anyone from seeing it..
