Sense and Sensibility

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?

I really enjoyed this miniseries version of the Jane Austen favorite. The acting was superb and the screenplay tight and well-written. Andrew Davies rarely disappoints with his adaptations. Seeing minor changes between this series and the Emma Thompson movie, I am curious as to which scenes stuck closer to the source novel. But this is merely curiosity; it would not affect my appreciation of either version. I have never been one to insist productions to hew exactly to books, as long as changes do not alter the intentions within the arc of the story. This is a fine ensemble piece and true to the spirit of the novel.
