Item Details

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? Miss Austen regrets: Approaching her fortieth birthday, Jane Austen appears happily unmarried. When asked by her young niece Fanny to help her vet potential husbands, Jane's confident composure is threatened as she finds herself looking back on her own potential suitors and the choices she has made. Based on the life and letters of Jane Austen.

From the critics


Library Staff

Another new adaption of Jane Austen's classic novel. I like this one as the actors are age appropriate and the seaside cottage setting is breathtakingly gorgeous. Stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) David Morrisey (State of Play) and Dominic Cooper.
