|From acclaimed writer Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice) comes this enchanting new adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel!|
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?
Editor's NoteFans of Jane Austen have come to trust the BBC and Masterpiece for their excellent adaptations of the author's classic work, and this version of SENSE & SENSIBILITY is no exception. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE screenwriter Andrew Davies provides the script for this miniseries about the Dashwood sisters and their quests for marriage. Eldest sister Elinor tries to be the practical one as she thinks of someone who can't be hers, while her younger sister Marianne dives headlong into passion without considering the consequences. This adaptation stars David Morrissey (STATE OF PLAY), Janet McTeer (TUMBLEWEEDS), and Dominic Cooper (STARTER FOR TEN).
