Directed by Ang Lee, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY is the story of two sisters; sensible Elinor played by two-time AcademyAward® winner EMMA THOMPSON* (Best Actress - Howard's End, 1993) and passionate, wilful Marianne (Academy Award® winner KATE WINSLET - Best Actress - The Reader, 2009). When their father dies, by law his estate must pass to the eldest son from his first marriage, forcing his current wife and daughters to find somewhere more primitive to live. With their sudden loss of fortune, the sisters' chances of marriage seem doomed. Their well-intentioned suitors, played by ALAN RICKMAN (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Truly Madly Deeply), HUGH GRANT (Bridget Jones's Diary, Notting Hill) and GREG WISE (Johnny English) are trapped by the strict rules of a society obsessed with financial and social status and the conflicting laws of desire.
