Based on one of Jane Austen’s most beloved novels and directed by Ang Lee, Sense and Sensibility is the story of two sisters; sensible Elinor played by two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson* (Best Actress - Howard's End, 1993) and passionate, wilful Marianne (Kate Winslet - Iris, Titanic).
When their father dies, by law his estate must pass to the eldest son from his first marriage, forcing his current wife and daughters to find somewhere more primitive to live. With their sudden loss of fortune, the sisters' chances of marriage seem doomed. Their well-intentioned suitors, played by Alan Rickman(Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Truly Madly Deeply), Hugh Grant (Bridget Jones's Diary, Notting Hill) and Greg Wise (Mad Cows) are trapped by the strict rules of a society obsessed with financial and social status and the conflicting laws of desire.

Emma Thompson scores a double bull's-eye with this marvellous adaptation of Jane Austen's novel . Not only does Thompson turn in a strong (and gently humorous) performance as Elinor Dashwood--the one with "sense"--she also wrote the witty, wise screenplay. Austen's tale of 19th-century manners and morals provides a large cast with a feast of possibilities, notably Kate Winslet, in her pre-Titanic flowering, as Thompson's deeply romantic sister, Marianne (the one with "sensibility"). Winslet attracts the wooing of shy Alan Rickman (a nice change of pace from his bad-guy roles) and dashing Greg Wise, while Thompson must endure an incredibly roundabout courtship with Hugh Grant, here in fine and funny form. All of this is doled out with the usual eye-filling English countryside and handsome costumes, yet the film always seems to be about the careful interior lives of its characters. The director, an inspired choice, is Taiwan-born Ang Lee, who brings the same exquisite taste and discreet touch he displayed in his previous Asian films (such as Eat Drink Man Woman). Thompson's script won an Oscar. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

You'll have to forgive Mr Grants rather mannered acting and he walks is as if he is in deep pain on each step.
