Tonight's Movie: Sense and Sensibility (1995)

Tonight we watched a favorite film, certainly one of the best films of the '90s: Emma Thompson's adaptation of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY. Beautifully told, with a superlative cast including Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Hugh Laurie, and two actors from favorite old British programs, Gemma Jones (THE DUCHESS OF DUKE STREET) and Robert Hardy (ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL).

The novel is probably my favorite by Austen, though PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and EMMA are stiff competition :).

The DVD includes two commentary tracks and some entertaining deleted scenes.
