Film Review by Allen Henriquez

Sense and Sensibility (1995)

From the novel by Jane Austen

 

Directed by Ang Lee

Screenplay by Emma Thompson

Cinematography: Michael Coulter

Music: Patrick Doyle

Cast: Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant, Alan Pickman, Greg Wise, Elizabeth Spriggs, Robert Hardy, Emile Francois, Imogen Stubbs

Jane Austen’s greatly detailed novel with its crisscrossing interaction of characters that speaks intelligently of England’s sexist law regarding inheritance are brought to life in: Emma Thompson’s screenplay, Ang Lee’s direction, and a great cast, with drama and intensity. The Dashwood family are forced to relocate to a cottage, after the death of the family’s father. However, the challenges become greater when the sisters, Elinor (Emma Thompson) and Marianne (Kate Winslet), interact with the choice of romantic partners put before them.

The novel, and the film, speak of love, love in the true sense, not compromised or falsely labeled by circumstance. Sense and Sensibility, this 1995 film version of Jane Austen’s book, is a gem.
