From acclaimed writer Andrew Davies comes this enchanting new adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel about love and marriage. Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve when she falls in love with the charming but unsuitable John Willoughby, ignoring her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Elinor, sensitive to social convention, struggles to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Will the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love?]]>
Austen fans will be delighted with the second disc in this set: Miss Austen Regrets is a perfect companion to the miniseries, starring Olivia Williams stars as the author, and Greta Scacchi--who could easily pass as Williams' real-life sibling--as Austen's sister Cassandra. The film takes a bittersweet look at Austen's life and hints at what could have been had she married one of her suitors. Smart and headstrong, Austen refuses to cave into society's notions of what a proper woman should do. While her famous heroines all paired up with dashing gentlemen, Austen found that the loves of her life were her written creations. --Jae-Ha Kim
There are other versions of these movies that I like more, but these two certainly follow the books better. Read morePublished 7 days ago by equuscycle
What a value. These films are incredible. I am a bit of an Austen fanatic and Persuasion is my favorite work- it is literally the best version that exists! Read morePublished 20 days ago by AZ
Although the script is very similar to the Emma Thompson/Hugh Grant version, the story is more believable due to the fact that the actors are more age-appropriate. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Jeanclaire
Got movie super fast. So worth the price and more. I love older movie with Kate Winslet but this one I feel is much more complete. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jean Daughdrill

|When on Blu Ray?||
I didn't see this post. I just posted a question about this myself. I would love to have this version of Sense and Sensibility on blu-ray.

I do agree with you totally! I enjoyed the movie version that starred Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant and when I saw this BBC production, I was so happy! It rivals the Ang Lee version and I just fell in love with this one. I am soo glad a bought a copy of this version! I plan to watch it again!

I would love to know the answer to this as well! I adored Miss Austen Regrets and I'd love to buy it but couldn't find it anywhere.
