Critic Reviews for Sense and Sensibility
This movie, made with love and wit, reminds us how much charm, liveliness, passion, good sense--and sensibility--Jane Austen provides.
Elinor, in other words, is a performance, but it is a performance that issues intimately from Thompson's real character, as all good performances do.
Luminously brings to life Austen's vision of the dance of the sexes.
Thompson's script manages the neat trick of preserving the necessary niceties and decorum of civilized behavior of the time while still cutting to the dramatic quick.
I can't say I remembered this 1995 feature too clearly a couple of days later; but I certainly had a good time as I watched it.
Audience Reviews for Sense and Sensibility
It is hard to believe anybody gets happily married in 19th century England with all the rules and customs. Jane Austen writes interesting books, and the actors in this adaptation are very convincing.
A faithful adaptation, especially in tone, of Austen's enjoyable novel. Even though not a remarkable story, it benefits mostly from great performances by Thompson and Winslet, in a visually enchanting period drama that combines well romance and humor.
This is a beautiful adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel, starring a bunch of beautiful and brilliant actors and actresses. Having read the book, I don't think this movie left much out. So, if you're a fan, don't worry, and see this movie.
