Emma Thompson spent five years translating Jane Austen's work to the screen. Fans of the film will treasure this beautiful volume that includes her screenplay, diaries of the writing and the filming, and many gorgeous color pictures from the film. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This first book by Academy Award^-winning actress Emma Thompson contains both the screenplay of the Jane Austen novel and the diary she kept during the long months of filming. Thompson labored over the screenplay for five years, and the resulting treatment of what many consider Austen's weakest novel is strong, well written, and enjoyable to read. Fans of the movie as well as of Austen will enjoy perusing the screenplay, and the accompanying photographs of the cast and set are striking. The last section of the book is dedicated to Thompson's diary, which is fairly brief, written in sharp, witty style, and alternately hilarious and morose. Thompson's musings and witticisms are often very funny and ultimately provide a clear, definitely unglamorous documentary of life on a movie set. An interesting introductory piece by producer Lindsay Doran details the 15-year odyssey that finally saw the film to fruition.

A beautiful book of colour and black & white photographs from the film, this book contains Emma Thompson's Oscar winning screenplay as well as her diaries from her time making Sense and Sensibility. A must have for any Sense & Sensibility (film) fan or of course, any Emma Thompson fan. It's no wonder she won the Oscar, her skills of the use of the English language are impeccable. Highly recommended.
There are several versions of this same book. To my knowledge, this particular one is the only one which contains colour photographs.
