      Sense and Sensibility, 1995, starring Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson is a very good adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic. When their father dies, the Dashwood family is left with very little means to live on.

      The house and everything in it is inherited by Mr.

      Dashwood’s son John from


      his first marriage, so Mrs.

      Dashwood and her three daughters are forced to move out.

      They find an inexpensive cottage to rent and try to get on with life.

      Two oldest sisters, Elinor and Marianne, are exactly the opposite in character: Elinor is quiet and thoughtful, always keeping her feelings in check; Marianne pretty much lets her feelings run her life and accuses Elinor of having no heart.

      John Willoughby even loves Shakespeare, like she does.

      However, the depth of Willoughby’s devotion is revealed when he is forced to choose between money and love; he forsakes Marianne and marries for money.

      Elinor, too, has a romantic attachment, but, unlike Marianne, she carefully guards her heart.

      That proves

      wise when it turns out that Edward, the quiet, modest young man she likes, has been secretly engaged.

      Elinor accepts the fact that he belongs to another woman.

      However, when Edward’s fortune changes, his fiancée changes her mind and marries his brother.

      Elinor’s sensibility is rewarded; she marries the man she loves.
