Even if you've never read Sense & Sensibility, or any other Jane Austen novel, you'll be in no doubt as to how this movie ends within minutes of the opening credits. However, it's the journey to the obvious denouement and the fine performances along the way, that made this such an enjoyable way to spend a wintry afternoon. 3.5 stars
I love these old fashioned love stories. Beautiful
Love my classics so I enjoyed it.
Great movie for Jane Austin fans & great cast too.
Classic Jane Austen - very enjoyable
Fantastic period romance/drama...keeps you guessing right till the end!
Absolutely beautiful movie! I loved it!
I believe all the main actors in this movie should have received Oscars. Definately a girl flick though.
Excellent. Well acted. Great scenery. Hugh G actually is well suited to E.Ferrars. Alan R is of course made for the role of Col. Brandon. Emma T & Kate W great and the young girl playing the third sister is a real treasure.
For Austenophiles it stays quite faithful to the book, except for the double wedding at the end which I suppose saved about 20 minutes. Terrific casting, although it took a while to get used to Hugh Grant as a potential clergyman. Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman are their usual impeccable selves.
Good Jane Austen story, well acted,great English period settings and excellent viewing
Every bit as good as the book. Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson gave beautiful performances and Hugh Grant was ... well Hugh Grant.
I cannot imagine why on earth I have neglected to watch this film earlier. At first glance, it would not seem the type of film that would interest me, even though being a great fan of Alan Rickman it is always been the only film of his that I have been reluctant to view. Having seen a short collection of clippings of the film on Youtube, I decided to hire it out as soon as possible. It is well worth the 2 odd hours and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Naturally I adored Alan in this role, but was also impressed with the rest of the cast. It's funny, romantic and while there are a few sadder scenes, overall the film leaves you feeling lighthearted.
This is a sparkling, witty adaptation that leaves the old BBC miniseries for dead! The casting is excellent and just a little off-beat (Snape as Colonel Brandon is a real bonus). Emma Thompson is vastly superior to the BBC's supercilious version of Eleanor. My only criticism is that the movie is far too short
This movie is very true to Jane Austen's book & period while retaining ease of access for the modern viewer. All the performances are excellent. It can be enjoyed by Austen fans without their own sensibilities being abraded -- thus well outside the usual run of films "based on" books. I normally run a mile from movie versions of books but have enjoyed this one several times.
Romantic and witty, it was great.
good cast, classic story but seemingly rushed ending - still worth watching
Very pleasant watching for females.
This movie is captivating. The production is superb. The story reaches you emotionally.
