Sense and Sensibility (1995)
Genre: Drama, Romance
I have loved this movie as a child and it still has not disappointed when watching it again now 🙂 . It is a great adaptation from Jane Austen’s book that is mostly faithful but still makes you feel like you are watching a new story 🙂 . There is a stellar cast in this movie such as Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant and many more 😀 . Each character was as realistic as possible and made us feel for (and believe) these characters because of their extremely excellent performance in this movie. I quite liked all the main characters equally and don’t think I can pick a favourite 😛 . The pace of the film runs well and gives us plenty of details without boring us with too much 😛 . There is a good level of humour still added in this movie with some odd scenes and clever dialogue. This movie does more focus on the romance element but that is expected as this is a Jane Austen tale. The heartbreaking scene with Marianne is stunning (the one in the rain later in the film) and memorable 🙂 . Each of the sisters (Elinor and Marianne) has a sad moment which makes you feel for them and could make one quite tearful. The relationships are quite believable between the characters and makes the tale very interesting. The film ends well plus the costumes and set of this movie are stunning 😀 ! This is a fantastic period drama movie that can keep a fan entertained from beginning to end. Plus the movie has a nice 90’s nostalgia that works in the film’s favour 🙂 . I would definitely recommend this if you love period drama romances 🙂 Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
