2013 TIFF in the Park: Ang Lee's 'Sense & Sensibility' @ David Pecaut Square

  • Aug 14, 2013 · 7:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members



Love this Jane Austen book but have not seen Ang Lee's film version yet.  











 Event Host is Karen L- You could e-mail me at [masked] with any questions/suggestions regarding this event.





When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and their three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery John Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried.

    First time seeing this film and enjoyed it just as much as the book. Thought both Allan Rickman & Kate Winslett were terrific. It was nice to meet some of our new members as well seeing old ones. Thank's again everyone for a fun night.

      Thanks again Robert for the help and the sweet treats. It definitely got a bit chilly the second half of the film. We should do one more outdoor film before Summer ends, oh no....
