Product Description

Triple-bill of romantic film dramas. In 'Atonement' (2007), on the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan) sees her older sister Cecilia (Keira Knightley) strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching Cecilia is their housekeeper's son Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), a childhood friend who, along with Briony's sister, has recently graduated from Cambridge. By the end of that day the lives of all three have been changed forever. Robbie and Cecilia have crossed a boundary they had never before dared to approach and have become victims of the younger girl's scheming imagination - and Briony has committed a dreadful crime, the guilt for which will colour her entire life. Romola Garai and Vanessa Redgrave co-star as Briony as she grows older. In 'Pride and Prejudice' (2005), based on Jane Austen's novel, when wealthy Mr Bingley (Simon Woods) and his friend, the dashing Mr Darcy (MacFadyen) arrive in a small Hertfordshire town, Mrs Bennett (Brenda Blethyn) sees it as the perfect opportunity to marry off her eligible daughters. But when Elizabeth Bennett (Keira Knightley) meets Mr Darcy, their equally headstrong natures get in the way of true love. Finally, in 'Sense and Sensibility' (1995), Emma Thompson stars in and provides the screenplay for this adaptation of another classic Austen novel. Thompson plays Elinor, the eldest of sisters who are reduced in means when their father dies and his estate passes on to his son from his first marriage. They are soon accepted into their new society, each finding romance, but with some pain along the way. Also starring Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman, the film won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as three BAFTAs.

Trying to collect all films directed by Ang Lee, I could have bought his Oscar winning 'Sense & Sensibility' separately and quite cheaply. I always look for box set alternatives, to eke out maximum value or get more films from a particular director/actor and this set came up on Amazon. This is the one with Kate Winslett, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman.

I had rented 'Atonement' when the DVD came out and really liked it and so I don't mind playing that one again, sometime. Directed by Joe Wright, this is more adult, with a certificate 15 and is a lot darker than your average period drama. Keira Knightley gave a knockout performance, as did James McAvoy, both in career defining roles.

'Pride & Prejudice', I'd seen on TV even longer ago and it'd be good to refresh myself with that one. Also directed by Joe Wright, again with Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen plus the wonderful Dame Judi Dench.

The set I bought was a collector's metal box one. Whichever variant you go for, the three make ideal companions, but bear in mind that 'Atonement' may not suit the very young or very old. As such, it would make a lovely gift to any lover and appreciator of fine British period drama - films that us Brits can be proud of.

I must say that these films were very good.

Pride and Prejudice: The film moved quite slowly, but the actors and screenplay make it worth a watch. Obviously adapted from the book by Jane Austen, it takes you back to that earlier period of time, and lets you see just how important the relationships between people were.

Atonement: I have to say, I thought this was a great film, and very sad. I would have the tissues ready for this one. The actors are brilliant, the story is very clever and you are never really aware what is happening next, which I like, but you need to pay attention! Kiera Knightly is brilliant, and I love young Saoirse Ronan's performance.

Sense and Sensibility: This was my favourite one of the 3. This film was the first Jane Austen adaptation for 50 years, and, with Emma Thompson's absolutely brilliant screenplay, the film is understandable, to any generation and I believe that is an amazing feat. The actors were amazing, with an impressive cast featuring Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Greg Wise, Hugh Laurie, Imelda Staunton and many others!

So what I'm trying to say, very badly, is buy this wonderful trio! You won't regret it!

Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility are all excellent films. However 'Sense and Sensibility' is my absolute favourite. It is a wonderful escapist romance. It is interesting that Churchill read this book during the war - he could always spot a good narrative. Ang Lee has created an exceptional film which deserves to be enjoyed on a regular basis.

Atonment is a good film but no need to watch it a second time? However, 'Pride & Prejudice' and 'Sense & Sensibility' are truly magnificent films! Great stories, great actors, great locations, great details - a great treat to watch again and again

I am not a Jane Austin reader so cannot comment on the book-to-film adaptation. But as a relaxing evening film with a nice glass of wine, just sit back and enjoy the charm of a bygone age. Also, excellent value with 3 films!

I bought as a gift for my mother. It comes in a nice presentation tin with the cover picture above and the DVD inside. If you like any one of the films then you'll be sure to like them all. Even if you haven't seen them then people who enjoy period drama with a splash of British wit will love these.
