Based on the book by Jane Austen. Tells of the Dashwood sisters, sensible Eleanor and passionate Marianne, whose chances at marriage seem doomed by their family's sudden loss of fortune.

Thompson told me about herself, her fellow actors, about Austin, about books and movies. Quite a read.

While inevitably a film is different from a book, with less introspection and more visuals, I felt that this adaptation was very faithful to the original. My husband hasn’t read the book, but enjoyed the film, vaguely recalling the first time we saw it. There were one or two places where we chuckled, mostly at the wonderfully ironic and brilliantly timed asides from Mr Palmer, perfectly cast as Hugh Laurie.

Highly recommended.
