Sense & Sensibility Hits PBS– "Sexed Up– Not Dumbed Down!" Jane Austen Series on PBS!
We love our Jane Austen stories and Sense and Sensibility is as good as it gets– trumped perhaps only by Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice! (sigh) . Airing March 30 and April 6, this is a story that is a key piece of the Austen works.
Sisters Elinor (Hattie Morahan, The Golden Compass) and Marianne Dashwood (Charity Wakefield, Jane Eyre) have opposite approaches when it comes to the pursuit of love. One is tempered and rational, the other impulsive and full of youthful passion.
The sisters attract a trio of suitors — handsome Edward Ferrars (Dan Stevens, The Line of Beauty), heroic Colonel Brandon (David Morrissey, State of Play), and effusive John Willoughby (Dominic Cooper, The History Boys).
But are the men as genuine as they seem? A romantic odyssey full of seduction and abandonment unfolds in Andrew Davies’s bold adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel.
So if you are an Austen-ite, make sure this is scheduled for your DVR/TIVO. If you haven’t seen or read the books, do the schedule and watch something really interesting, dramatic and actually intelligent.
