Format: Paperback
I bought this because S&S is one of my absolute favourite rainy day, sunny day and ironing day films... in fact, I have been known to watch it in small chunks throughout a cleaning day, too!

I am also a massive Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson fan (I know, I can see you yawning from here...) so to have the diaries was a total bonus.

The Screenplay is brilliant and I have sat through the film reading the words out loud! lol

Basically, if you love the film you will love the book. If you like the idea of working in the film industry, it gives a fascinating insight into the process and the time consuming nature of the work. It also shows that actors are human too, and it's very funny!

I loved it and it will stay by bed like a Gideon bible.

Who knew Emma Thompson was/is so potty-mouthed! What's with all the F*** words in a book that would be read by young girls as well as adults.

Not does it only come with bts photos, but Emma Thompson's film journal, which is as hilarious as the woman herself.

A candid and witty look at filming a classic novel 10 May 2011
By Laurel Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nominated for seven Academy Awards®, the 1995 movie Sense and Sensibility remains one of my most cherished interpretations of a Jane Austen novel. Everything about this film project seems to be touched with gold; from the award winning screenplay by actress Emma Thompson; to the incredible depth of British acting talent: Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Gemma Jones, Harriet Walter, Greg Wise, Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson; stunning film locations in Devonshire; and the fine brush-work of the Taiwanese director Any Lee. The movie touched many and introduced Jane Austen's classic story of two divergent sisters searching for happiness and love to millions. I never tire of viewing it, basking in its beautiful cinematography, enjoying its thoughtful performances and marveling at its exquisitely crafted screenplay - both reverent to Austen's intentions and engaging to modern audiences.

Reading SENSE AND SENSIBILITY: THE SCREENPLAY & DIARIES written by Emma Thompson and introduced by the movie producer Lindsay Doran was such a pleasure. What a labor of love this movie was for both actress/writer Thompson and producer Doran who spent fifteen years to bring it to the screen. This highly acclaimed film won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar and Golden Globe in 1996 for Thompson and the praise of hundreds of film critics and fans. Her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes was so witty and Austen-like that the film clip is a perennial favorite on Youtube. This book contains the complete screenplay, over fifty photos of the actors, scenes from the film and Thompson's candid and often hilarious daily entries of what it was like to be involved in this incredible project. Here is a great excerpt:

"Tuesday 11 April: No one can sleep for excitement. Costume designers John Bright and Jenny Beavan wish they had three more weeks but have done truly great work. The shapes and colours and inimitable. Lindsay's already in Plymouth frantically trying to cut the script. It's still too long. The art department object to us bathing Margaret in the parlour. Apparently they always used a kitchen or bedroom in the nineteenth century. Perhaps the Dashwoods are different, I suggest, unhelpfully."

"Thompson's rare and personal perspective makes SENSE AND SENSIBILITY: THE SCREENPLAY AND DIARIES an irresistible book for students of film and Austen devotees, as well as for everyone who loved this extraordinary movie." This is a must read for Jane Austen and period movie fans, and I highly recommend it.

Laurel Ann, Austenprose

Very fun read 31 Dec. 2007
By E. Lefebvre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sense and Sensibility is my favorite film of all time and this book is a wonderful companion piece for any fan of the film as well. Emma Thompson's diary of the production is wonderfully witty and interesting. There are also very high quality portraits of the cast and beautiful production shots included in the book. Highly recommended.

This book is a copy of Emma Thompson's screenplay along with the diary notes that she kept while making the movie. Not sure what I was expecting, but I love the movie so it appealed to me. You might enjoy this if you are an Emma Thompson fan.
Great Gift for Austen Fans 1 Jan. 2014

The film is my mother's favorite, so I got this for her as a X-Mas gift. She was totally engrossed in it, and was so happy to have it in her library.
Love the movie 13 Jan. 2015

Love the movie, but the diaries part was short and you get the feeling that it was HEAVILY edited and sanitized for publication. Save your money.
