More About Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, James Fleet, Tom Wilkinson, Harriet Walter & Ang Lee

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Emma Thompson is an Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress who lives in London and Argyll. Her father was Eric Thompson, the man behind The Magic Roundabout, and she remembers him reading Beatrix Potter's tales to her and her sister in his best Dougal voice. "We would always want The Tale of Mr. Tod, which is lengthy and satisfyingly spooky. He would always read The Tale of a Fierce Bad Rabbit, which has about three words on each page. But--thanks to Potter's genius--we were never, ever disappointed."
Eleanor Taylor grew up in Scotland and England, and has a great affinity for the countryside of both places, which is beautifully reflected in the engaging characters and beautiful scenes illustrated in this book.

Three Cheers for "The Patient Pleasures of a Gourmet Meal"  May 16, 2010
This film made me recall an article by Suzanne Fields, bemoaning the Sexual Revolution & the anniversary of Playboy Magazine: "cultural attitudes shifted radically. Junk sex was no better than junk food, but millions of men and women greedily devoured the empty calories....Playboy made male fantasies public and the public culture embraced those fantasies in real life. It vulgarized what most men and women in their deepest sentiments hold dear....It turned courtship away from the patient pleasures of a gourmet meal with many courses and replaced it with a cheesy burger"(Suzanne Fields, Yearning for a glimpse of shocking stocking, 12/15/03)
All About Austen  May 10, 2010
Okay, okay, okay I KNOW I buy anything remotely Jane Austen. I can't help myself. I think I need a 12-Step program. The delightful "Sense and Sensibility" scripted and starring Emma Thompson is no exception to my compulsion. This is my favorite adaptation of the book. Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman are no slouches either starring alongside Ms. Thompson. It is a wonderful British romantic romp that always puts a smile on my face. I hope it does yours, too.

May I take this opportunity to persuade you to enjoy Pride and Prejudice - The Special Edition (A&E, 1996) and Emma. Also two of my fave adaptations.

Jolly Good Show Jane!
Never Tire of It  May 7, 2010
I've watched this film many times, even had an online chat with Lindsay Doran, the producer. This is a stunning film, and Emma Thompson's contribution as the screenwriter made this film a gem. Excellent cast, and of course, excellent scenery. Strongly recommended as a gift to a special person.
Better than I expected  May 2, 2010
For being a motion picture and not a miniseries, this 1994 adaptation of Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" is quite good. It does eliminate many scenes, some characters, and alters certain minor elements of plot. However, Thompson does so in probably the most practical manner possible to maintain the overall integrity of the major story: Elinor and Marianne's romances. For people who claim the plot is boring, my only response is (1) that it isn't particularly Austen but (2) it is very interesting for individuals who have never read the novel, so much so that Thompson won an academy award for best screenplay.

One other point: some people might consider Thompson too old to play 19-20 year old Elinor Dashwood. From the cover of the DVD case, I'll allow you to make that decision for yourself.

Finally, if you are an Austen afficiando and you desire to know exactly where and how the film deviates from the novel, I have provided the following summary. If you have not read "Sense and Sensiblity" at least once in its entirety, what follows will not assist you. Also, what follows reveals certain plot details.

Margaret is 11 years old rather than 13.
Colonel Brandon is named Colonel Christopher Brandon.
Lucy Steele has no sister.
Willoughby does not visit Marianne at the Palmers when she is ill.
Mrs. Ferrars (i.e. Edward's mother) is never physically shown in the film.

Below is a list of changes from the novel. One may assume that items not mentioned as having been changed accurately follow the novel.

First 70 minutes:

Mrs. John Dashwood has no children.

Mrs. John Dashwood is not as manipulative of her husband as in the novel. She does not properly assist him in lowering and lowering what he plans to do for the Dashwood sisters. (In fact, Mrs. John Dashwood is portrayed as very selfish and rather stupid.)

Edward Ferrar's behavior is a little too romantic for the period. Also, Edward almost tells Elinor of his prior engagement to Lucy but then is called away by his mother to London.

Barton Cottage is a bit too large and fine, although this is not too obvious.

Sir John Middleton has no wife and children.

Mrs. Jennings does not ask Marianne to play a song after Marianne has just finished playing the same song.

Mrs. Jennings talks to Elinor about Brandon's past love life - details Brandon is supposed to provide at a later date.

Willoughby's behavior is also more modernized then it should be. At times, he behaves exceedingly childish and rude (more so than the novel would permit).

Lucy Steele does not arrive with her sister to Barton Park. In this film, Lucy has no sister.

Lucy does not confide her engagement secret to Elinor outside Barton Cottage but after a diner party at Barton Party.

Elinor and Marianne travel to London with Mrs. Jennings AND the Palmers, since in the film, they ALL travel to London at the same time.

Last 65 minutes:

Mrs. Jennings, Lucy, Elinor, and Marianne travel to London together. There is not evidence of Marianne being quiet/pensive on the trip because so little time is spent on the carriage ride from Barton Cottage to London. (This also mitigates, in the mind of the viewer, the very long distance between Barton Cottage and London.)

[Time between arriving at London and the ball where Marianne sees Willoughby is very minimal.]

The ball scene does not show Mrs. John Dashwood's treatment of favoritism toward Lucy at the expense of Elinor.

Miss Williams is given the first name of Beth.

Elinor tells Marianne about Willoughby's sexual escapades with Beth (i.e. Miss Williams) immediately after learning of them from Colonel Brandon, rather than waiting until the very end of the novel.

Lucy returns from the John Dashwood family (where she was a guest) to see Elinor. While Elinor and Lucy are talking, Edward arrives. Instead of Elinor going to fetch Marianne, Marianne, herself, enters. They are only together for a matter of moments before Edward claims he has to leave to perform an errand on Fanny's behalf. Lucy accompanies him.

Lucy, herself, tells Mrs. John Dashwood of her love for Edward Ferrars after Mrs. Dashwood claims Lucy is going to marry well.

Colonel Brandon tells Elinor he wishes to give the Dellaford living to Edward. However, this conversation takes place outdoors and is very short. Also, Mrs. Jennings is not present to misunderstand their conversation.

When the party goes to the Palmers country residence, Mrs. Jennings remains behind.

[Time between Willoughby's cruel letter and trip to the Palmers does not adequately show Marianne's decline in health.]

When Marianne wanders around outside the Palmers during a thunderstorm, she actually walks across fields, all the way to Willoughby's estate. While looking down upon the estate, she quotes Shakespeare's sonnet, "Love is not love which alters..."

Marianne falls ill and is brought back to the Palmers by Colonel Brandon.

Mrs. Palmer is hysterical when Dr. Harris says that Marianne's fever is infectious and that she should remove her baby from the house.

Willoughby does NOT visit the Palmers during Marianne's illness to justify his behavior. He doesn't appear at all.

Immediately after Colonel Brandon arrives with Mrs. Dashwood to Marianne's bedside, the scene shifts back to Barton Cottage where Colonel Brandon is reading poetry to Marianne, who is still recovering her strength.

Colonel Brandon gives Marianne a small piano for Barton Cottage.

A double marriage occurs at the same time between Colonel Brandon and Marianne Dashwood & Edward Ferrars and Elinor Dashwood.

Scene with Willoughby looking down upon the cottage - seems to be with an air of regret.

Film ends with Colonel Brandon throwing handfuls of coins into the air for the villages (and others) who came to help celebrate his marriage to Marianne Dashwood.
