    Sense & Sensibility
    A moving and powerful three-part adaptation of Sense and Sensibility,Jane Austen’s romantic story of love, betrayal and passion versus strict social convention. When Marianne Dashwood falls for the dashing but wayward Willoughby, her sister Elinor warns her that her impulsive behaviour might attract disapproval in social circles. But Marianne is simply impatient with Elinor for not understanding affairs of the heart. Little does she know that Elinor has met with a bitter disappointment of her own – a disappointment which she, always mindful of social decorum, has struggled to keep secret, even from Marianne. The two sisters’ differing experiences of love finally bring them to the understanding that they are both partially right: sense and sensibility will eventually be of equal value in bringing about their personal happiness

    At the age of nineteen, Anne Elliot fell deeply in love with handsome young naval officer Frederick Wentworth. But with neither fortune nor rank to recommend him, Anne's family were against the match and persuaded her to break off the engagement. Now twenty-seven, Anne has lived to regret her decision. She has never stopped loving Wentworth, and when he returns from sea having made his fortune and reputation, she can only watch as every eligible young woman in the district falls at his feet. Has he forgotten the girl he left behind? And can he forgive her for listening to her family instead of her heart?.
