As well as her starring turn as Elinor Dashwood, Emma Thompson also shaped the film by adapting Jane Austen's novel and writing the screenplay, which won her the 1995 Oscar for best screenplay. Rickman's characteristic drawl is wonderfully employed to playing the austere but kind Colonel Brandon. This charming love story is both an intelligent adaptation of classic literature and a vehicle for some of Britain's most prestigious actors: Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet, Imogen Stubbs, Hugh Laurie, Imelda Staunton and Greg Wise make up the stupendously talented cast.
It's the perfect film for a Sunday afternoon. Throw in an intimate Q&A with a pair of our most esteemed actors cum dramaturges this Sense and Sensibility screening becomes a must-see. Book fast!
