Summary
**From acclaimed writer Andrew Davies comes this.enchanting adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic.novel about love and marriage.**..Left penniless after their father’s death, Elinor and.Marianne Dashwood face an uncertain future. They.need to marry well if they are to retain their comfortable.existence...With a number of possible suitors – the intelligent.and charming Mr Edward Ferrars, the handsome.Mr John Willoughby and the more thoughtful and.compassionate Colonel Brandon – they seem to have.their share of options. But is there more to these men.than first impressions suggest? What is the history.between Willoughby and Brandon? And what secret is.Ferrars hiding?..The story follows the sisters’ very different approaches.to love and marriage. Romantic and impulsive, Marianne.falls in love deeply, but will not heed her sister’s.warning that her behaviour will leave her open to.gossip and innuendo. Sensitive to social convention,.her sister Elinor tries to conceal her own romantic.disappointment, even from those closest to her. The.sisters must learn that sense should mix with sensibility.if they are to find personal happiness in a society where.status and money govern the rules of love...Andrew Davies has proven himself to be the master of.literary adaptation, from classics, such as Bleak House,.to the politics and drug-fuelled sex and hedonism of.the 1980s in The Line of Beauty. An excellent script.combined with an outstanding cast means that Austen.fans will be waiting in anticipation for this adaptation. .."Andrew Davies’s superb new.adaptation of Jane Austen’s.novel is so watchable, above.and beyond the usual classic.adaptations. What makes.it exceptional, I think, is the.immense warmth between.the characters - particularly.the mother and her daughters - that compels the viewer to.care deeply what becomes of.them all."The Times
