In this vivid new
adaptation of Jane Austen’s first published novel, we meet the Dashwood
sisters, whose happy lives are dramatically changed in the wake of their
father’s death. Their home is taken by their half-brother and his overbearing
wife and they must learn to live on much less far away from all they’re
accustomed to. Amid their misfortune, love alights: the very sensible Elinor
falls for the equally cautious Edward Ferrars, while the flighty sensibilities
of Marianne flutter ill-advisedly to their handsome, reckless neighbor John
Willoughby. Both hard lessons and gentle guidance help them learn that
happiness in love is an unpredictable struggle against the most important
social values: family, honor, and wealth. Luckily, with Jane Austen love wins.
