Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
Dir: Ang Lee
When their father dies, the Dashwood sisters are left impoverished. But sensible Elinor (Emma Thompson) and vivacious Marianne (Kate Winslet) endure, eventually finding love (with Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman). This adaptation of Jane Austen’s first novel was Ang Lee’s first feature outside of Taiwan, as well as Thompson’s first effort as a screenwriter - for which she won an Academy Award.
Dir: Kenneth Branagh
Director Kenneth Branagh updates Shakespeare's classic to the second half of the 19th century and presents it in all its unedited glory in this epic treatment, one of the last films to be shot in 70mm. Actor Branagh shines in the title role, but director Branagh wisely surrounds himself with an astonishing supporting cast that includes Julie Christie, Sir Derek Jacobi, Kate Winslet, Rufus Sewell, Charlton Heston, John Gielgud ... and even Robin Williams and Billy Crystal! Not to be missed on the big screen.
