5.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting the DVD, 30 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Sense And Sensibility (Collector's Edition) [1996] [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Firstly, for anyone getting the DVD - it's worth it for the extras, particularly if you like the feature commentaries as I do. There are 2 - one with Ang Lee the other with Emma Thompson and another woman which I like the best (gives you all the trivia and inside story).
In terms of the film itself, it's a brilliant adaptation. I would recommend this to anyone unfamiliar with Austen's work as an introduction. It also made me want to read the book again, which I did with different eyes, so's to speak. The characters are magnificently portrayed - well done to whoever cast them. The Dashwood sisters Emma Thompson & Kate Winslet along with the young girl who played Margaret have a great on screen chemistry. Greg Wise is a very dashing Willoughby; Hugh Grant is more inarticulate but endearing as Edward Ferrers than he was in 4Weddings!! Alan Rickman demonstrates that he can still play a romantic, soft hearted man of integrity as Col Brandon. Add to this the comedy aspect of Robert Harris and the "other Mrs Dashwood" and bring in another talented actress - Gemma Jones - as the senior Mrs Dashwood and you've pretty much got an all star cast who compliment one another superbly.
A must have for any DVD collector
