This superb production illustrates why BBC versions of Austen novels are so much more satisfying than other attempts. Here, the cast chemistry is seamless across accomplished, but lesser-known actors. The Ang Lee version cast famous actors who each unavoidably stands out--resulting in an unevenness as the story plays toward its conclusion. I know this observation is a bit unfair to the likes of Kate Winslet (who I adore), but watch each of them and then decide which movie engaged you more.

Officially my favorite version of Jane Austen's classic (and first!) novel. I think the actors were chosen perfectly, I loved the pacing of the film, and that they included so much from the story. It may not be as good as the book, but I'm not sure that is even possible. A great way to enjoy Sense and Sensibility in film!

I always watched the other version with Emma Thompson so I wasnt excited about this but I ended up loving this one better. The actresses chosen were perfect and I LOVE Dan Stevens!

I love this adaption! Way better than the Emma Thompson version for two reasons:
1. It just is.
2.Dan Stevens plays Edward Ferrars!!! AKA- Matthew Crawley ;)

This adaptation is so well done and so much better than the Emma Thompson movie. All characters are cast perfectly. The scenery is beautiful. The story was fully developed and clear. It's a must see if you enjoy this book.

Having never read the book or watched any other version of this story. I didn't know what to expect. I really really enjoyed this movie. I couldn't however get into the second disc Miss Austen Regrets, probably because I have seen those actors in other movies and they didn't seem to fit properly.

BBC Masterpiece Theater at its Absolute Finest. However, the ending on the first disc is so abrupt, that watching the second disc with a complete new story is a downer.

Nothing has proved him unworthy; nor has anything declared him indifferent to me.— I have had to contend against the unkindness of his sister, and the insolence of his mother; and have suffered the punishment of an attachment, without enjoying its advantages.
