Sense and Sensibility Reviews
The 3-dimensional nature of characters like Willoughby and the character development of Mariann are what turns this from a 'good adaptation' into a genuinely excellent, heartwarming film.
Hugh Laurie's cameo as Mr Palmer threatens to steal every scene.
Everything else is unwatchable, in the same way as the book of same title from Jane Austen is unreadable. Probably these things were interesting for English upper class ladies contemporary of Jane Austen. But, as I try to watch - or read - this kind of things, I can't help but thank God I live in a country where dukes, barons, earls and the like do not exist, by law.
This movie is worse than boring: it is about nothing interesting, a discussion about weather would be more interesting and deep.
Hugh Grant confirms to me to be - or having been - one of the worst and most disagreeable actor I know.
