  1. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Easy to underestimate as one of "those" period dramas but that would do a disservice to the exceptional balance achieved by Thompson's script and Lee's direction. It's so hard to capture both the comedy and seriousness in Austen's work, let alone make it sufficiently modern without undermining its sense of period authenticity, yet this is precisely what S&S achieves: a delightful, intelligent and very moving romance.

  2. m.jempson@btinternet.com's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Hard to fault anything that incorporates the very different bug no less excellent talents of Ang Lee and Emma Thompson - not to mention Jane Austen. Little too chocolate-boxy perhaps, but its nice to enjoy the occasional happy ending!

  4. McOpinionated's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    a great mix of incomprehensible period manner, laws and behaviours + modern ones that let the audience see these are not aliens, but people just like us. They have the same deep fears and emotions (being loved, being alone, the mysteries of life, money, success) but in an unfamiliar context. The gawky or unconventional young women and girls shine with beauty. The minor characters are utterly memorable. Wonderful.

  5. JCPJD's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    As with Altman and Gosford Park, it takes a foreigner to treat seriously the emotional contents of an English period piece. This is a remarkable adaptation that makes me wish Emma Thompson hadn't done a Lauryn Hill and stopped writing. It's a delight to spend time navigating the nuances of this world, living in the subtext, watching out for inflections. A lovely film.

  6. ant's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    I feel like an old granny, crying at a costume drama. At least love triumphs, not like Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

  7. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    The script and direction are very good, while feeling quite effortless, and the performances include great turns from Emma Thompson (who won an Oscar for her adaptation of the source material), Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Greg Wise, and many others. A real delight for fans of the Jane Austen tale, and fans of great stories that are expertly told.

  8. tealeaves's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Aaah...my teenage Jane Austen obsession revisited

  9. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Light, fluffy (in a good way) comedy drama. It won't hurt anyone, won't change lives... Just a well observed class tale, with lush shots of English countryside.

  10. Tja's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Love conquers all - again! Kate Winslett finding her mojo with support from Emma Thomson's engaging screenplay. Alan Rickman, RIP. Beautiful camera work from Ang Lee.

  11. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Austen's novel is not my favorite filmic subject but I have to admit that the translation into a film is masterly. It's fantastic how Ang Lee handles his actors and how he choreographs their movements.

  12. anacecil's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Muy buena adaptación del libro de Jane Austin !!!!

  13. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    One of the best adapted screenplays I've seen. Close to perfection, all it needed was perhaps a bit more risk-taking. Ang Lee is the real deal.

  14. Myles's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    1. Ang Lee is obsessed with loves that dare not speak their names 2. FUCK WILLOUGHBY! 3. Lots of pretty English countryside porn and some effective costume work; still, this is effectively made-for-tv quality filmmaking. An extra star because this is Rickman at his best. This is Rickman inspiring Rowling to write Snape before he gets to play him.

  15. N!nA's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    I don't want to believe that Alan Rickman is gone!

  16. blyniukas's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Elinor was supposed to be 19 years of age. What is Emma Thompson doing here as a slovenly 45-year-old housewife still remains a mystery to me.

  17. SpacePirate's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Thompson and Lee come together to create a quiet 90s masterpiece. All the actors are quite perfect for their roles, with Rickman, Thompson, and Winslet standing out. One of Lee's earliest English films, he handles the film with a masterful hand. Really a joy to watch. 4.5 stars

  20. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Jane Austen schrieb Sense and Sensibility 1795, veröffentlichte den Roman aber erst 16 Jahre später als sie sich traute, sich selbst als Schriftstellerin zu bezeichnen. Es ist die Geschichte einer Mutter mit drei Töchtern, die voller Leidenschaft auf den passenden Mann warten... mehr auf cinegeek.de http://cinegeek.de/sinn-und-sinnlichkeit-sense-and-sensibility-1995-rating-77-dvd698

  21. Justerodeusintherain's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Watched recently in honour of Alan. Love the mix of actors and actresses in this great casting and interesting to see kate winslet in a more selfish role I'm shocked i didn't see this sooner actually

  22. Nathan Goldman's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    i missed the first twenty minutes and typically that's the sort of thing that would irritate me so much that i wouldn't be able to watch it at all but i figured that, having heard the news that morning, i ought to make an exception. anyway i'm elinor drinking tea on the stairs

  23. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

    Subtle details of performance, and an elegant screenplay, make this one of my favorite Austen adaptations.
