The recipient of seven Oscar® nominations, this film version of Jane Austens classic 1811 novel stars Emma Thompson as Elinor Dashwood. With her mother and sisters, Elinor struggles financially after the death of her father, who bequeathed the Dashwood estate to his oafish son by an earlier marriage. While sorting out the familys affairs, the shy, self-sacrificing Elinor secretly falls for her stepbrother-in-law, Edward Ferrars (Hugh Grant), a sensitive, well-educated bachelor who cannot court her because of his foolhardy youthful engagement to the greedy Lucy Steele (Imogen Stubbs). The grateful Dashwoods are offered a modest country home by family friends, which they accept. Once relocated, Elinors brash, spirited sister Marianne (Kate Winslet) falls for a dashing local, John Willoughby (Greg Wise), a womanizer who nevertheless seems to share her affections. A prominent neighbor, Colonel Brandon (Alan Rickman), also falls in love with Marianne, but she is oblivious to the older mans affections. Eventually, Willoughby fails Marianne, breaking her heart, until she realizes Brandons feelings. When Edwards family disowns him, Lucy marries his brother instead, leaving him free to pursue an exultant Elinor. Thompson won the films sole Oscar® for her screenplay adaptation of Austens novel.~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide
