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.
In THE ENGLISH PATIENT helmer Anthony Minghella’s directorial debut, Julie Stevenson receives a back-from-the dead visit from her late, cello-playing husband, Alan Rickman. A charming romantic comedy. “…A fine job in capturing … textures of London life … a strong performance out of Stevenson … a beguiling film in more ways than one.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader.
