Overview

Fans of Jane Austen have come to trust the BBC and Masterpiece for their excellent adaptations of the author's classic work, and this version of SENSE & SENSIBILITY is no exception. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE screenwriter Andrew Davies provides the script for this miniseries about the Dashwood sisters and their quests for marriage. Eldest sister Elinor tries to be the practical one as she thinks of someone who can't be hers, while her younger sister Marianne dives headlong into passion without considering the consequences. This adaptation stars David Morrissey (STATE OF PLAY), Janet McTeer (TUMBLEWEEDS), and Dominic Cooper (STARTER FOR TEN).

In PERSUASION, though she refuses Captain Wentworth (Rupert Penry-Jones) in her youth, Anne Elliot's (Sally Hawkins, LITTLE BRITAIN) love for her handsome but penniless suitor never dies. When he returns eight years later--a wealthy and high-ranking naval officer--she has the chance to set things right. While the two leads ably carry the film, the highlight is Anthony Head's (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) hilarious turn as Anne's snobby father. This Masterpiece Theatre production offers a splendid rendition of Jane Austen's final novel. Austen fans will also be pleased by the inclusion of the critically praised drama about the author's life, MISS AUSTEN REGRETS, starring Olivia Williams (RUSHMORE) as Austen.
