Thompson spent five years writing and revising the screenplay, both during and between shooting other films.
I learned about screenwriting at her feet. Thompson's first draft was more than three hundred handwritten pages, which required her to reduce it to a more manageable length.
Doran later recalled the work was criticized for not getting underway until Willoughby's arrival, with Edward sidelined as backstory.
Thompson and Doran quickly realised that "if we didn't meet Edward and do the work and take that twenty minutes to set up those people With the draft screenplay, Doran pitched the idea to various studios in order to finance the film, but found that many were wary of the beginner Thompson as the screenwriter.
She was considered a risk, as her experience was as an actress who had never written a film script.
Columbia Pictures executive Amy Pascal supported Thompson's work, and agreed to sign as the producer and distributor.
As Thompson mentioned on the BBC program QI in , at one point in the writing process a laptop failure almost lost the entire work.
In panic Thompson called fellow actor and close friend Stephen Fry , the host of QI and a self-professed "geek". After seven hours, Fry was able to recover the documents from the device while Thompson had tea with Hugh Laurie who was at Fry's house at the time.
Taiwanese director Ang Lee was hired as a result of his work in the family comedy film The Wedding Banquet , which he co-wrote, produced, and directed.
He was not familiar with Jane Austen. From the beginning, Doran wanted Sense and Sensibility to appeal to both a core audience of Austen aficionados as well as younger viewers attracted to romantic comedy films.
About halfway through the script it started to make sense why they chose me. In my films I've been trying to mix social satire and family drama.
I realised that all along I had been trying to do Jane Austen without knowing it. Jane Austen was my destiny.
I just had to overcome the cultural barrier. Because Thompson and Doran had worked on the screenplay for so long, Lee described himself at the time as a "director for hire", as he was unsure of his role and position.
In January , Thompson presented a draft to Lee, Doran, co-producer Laurie Borg, and others working on the production, and spent the next two months editing the screenplay based upon their feedback.
Thompson initially hoped that Doran would cast sisters Natasha and Joely Richardson as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. Lee and Columbia wanted Thompson herself, now a "big-deal movie star" after her critically successful role in the film Howards End , to play Elinor.
Lee suggested Elinor's age be changed to twenty-seven, which would also have made the difficult reality of spinsterhood easier for modern audiences to understand.
The formal casting process began in February ,  though some of the actors met with Thompson the previous year to help her conceptualise the script.
Palmer's disenchantment and redemption so perfectly, and make it funny. Thompson wrote the part of Edward Ferrars with Grant in mind,  and he agreed to receive a lower salary in line with the film's budget.
Winslet pretended she had heard that the audition was still for Marianne, and won the part based on a single reading. Also appearing in the film was Alan Rickman , who portrayed Colonel Brandon.
Thompson was pleased that Rickman could express the "extraordinary sweetness [of] his nature," as he had played "Machiavellian types so effectively" in other films.
Dashwood, James Fleet as John Dashwood, Elizabeth Spriggs as Mrs. Jennings, Imogen Stubbs as Lucy Steele, Richard Lumsden as Robert Ferrars, Tom Wilkinson as Mr.
Dashwood, and Lone Vidahl as Miss Grey. According to Austen scholar Linda Troost, the costumes used in Sense and Sensibility helped emphasise the class and status of the various characters, particularly among the Dashwoods.
To achieve the tightly wound curls fashionably inspired by Greek art , some of the actresses wore wigs while others employed heated hair twists and slept in pin curls.
Fanny, the snobbiest of the characters, possesses the tightest of curls but has less of a Greek silhouette, a reflection of her wealth and silliness.
Jennings "couldn't quite give up the frills," and instead draped themselves in lace, fur, feathers, jewellery, and rich fabrics.
For Brandon's costumes, Beavan and Bright consulted with Thompson and Lee and decided to have him project an image of "experienced and dependable masculinity.
His rescue of Marianne has him transforming into the "romantic Byronic hero ", sporting an unbuttoned shirt and loose cravat. In conjunction with his tragic backstory, Brandon's "flattering" costumes help his appeal to the audience.
Dashwood's bloody fall from a horse — were deemed unfilmable from a cost perspective. According to Thompson, Lee "arrived on set with the whole movie in his head".
He showed the cast a selection of films adapted from classic novels, including Barry Lyndon and The Age of Innocence , which he believed to be "great movies; everybody worships the art work, [but] it's not what we want to do".
The cast and crew experienced "slight culture shock" with Lee on a number of occasions. He expected the assistant directors to be the "tough ones" and keep production on schedule, while they expected the same of him; this led to a slower schedule in the early stages of production.
Lee became known for his "frightening" tendency not to "mince words". There were all these pillows on the floor and these pale-looking actors were saying, 'What have we got ourselves into?
He also had Thompson and Winslet live together to develop their characters' sisterly bond. Lee found that in contrast to Chinese cinema,  he had to dissuade many of the actors from using a "very stagy, very English tradition.
Instead of just being observed like a human being and getting sympathy, they feel they have to do things, they have to carry the movie.
You can't stop that. I let him do, I have to say, less 'star' stuff, the Hugh Grant thing Production of Sense and Sensibility was scheduled for fifty-eight days, though this was eventually extended to sixty-five.
Production later returned to shoot several more scenes, finishing there on 29 April. Jennings' London estate, where Edward first sees Elinor with Lucy.
Early May saw production at the "exquisite" village church in Berry Pomeroy for the final wedding scene. Logistics were difficult, as the scene was set upon a hill during a rainy day.
From May to July, production took place at a number of other National Trust estates and stately homes across England.
Trafalgar House and Wilton House in Wiltshire stood in for the grounds of Barton Park and the London Ballroom respectively. Mompesson House , an eighteenth-century townhouse located in Salisbury , represented Mrs.
Jennings' sumptuous townhouse. Sixteenth-century Montacute House in Somerset was the setting for the Palmer estate of Cleveland House.
Composer Patrick Doyle , who had previously worked with his friend Emma Thompson in the films Henry V , Much Ado About Nothing , and Dead Again , was hired to produce the music for Sense and Sensibility.
Two songs are sung by Marianne in the film, with lyrics adapted from seventeenth-century poems. Lee believed that the two songs conveyed the "vision of duality" visible both in the novel and script.
Thompson and Doran discussed how much of the love stories to depict, as the male characters spend much of the novel away from the Dashwood sisters.
The screenwriter had to carefully balance the amount of screentime she gave to the male leads, noting in her film production diary that such a decision would "very much lie in the editing.
She considered having Edward re-appear midway through the film before deciding that it would not work as "there was nothing for him to do.
Jennings Elizabeth Spriggs tries to match the worthy and rich Colonel Brandon Alan Rickman to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery John Willoughby Greg Wise more to her taste.
Both relationships are sorely tried. Written by Kathy Li. A totally engrossing story of the desperation of women to become subservient to men and take a master.
Admittedly that was the expectation in those days, still is for far too many girls around the world but this kind of urgent determination to find a 'good' man to wait upon belongs in a museum along with some slave master statues.
That aside, the acting, especially Emma Thompson is top notch, it's directed by a visionary and pioneer and it flows quite elegantly along with a poetic and humorous dialogue.
Sadly, the only lessons to learn are those still being learnt some centuries later. All Titles TV Episodes Celebs Companies Keywords Advanced Search.

And I'm not really crazy about the boys, either. I'm not saying Austen wrote them incorrectly, but these were different times, and not all the stuff they did translates all that well into most people's version of what a modern-day heroine or hero should look like.
If you're a new-to-Austen reader, just keep that in mind. The general gist of this one is that two sisters, who have recently fallen on ha This is a great story and very interesting, but neither of the heroines is a favorite of mine.
The general gist of this one is that two sisters, who have recently fallen on hard financial times, also fall in love with two men.
With vastly different ways of showing it, and vastly different outcomes to their respective romances.
Marianne is impetuous, full of life, sure of herself, and unwilling to tone it down , as my mother would say. Her ideas of love are pure romance, and anyone who looks at love differently has no soul.
She very much represents how love is perceived by someone who is young or doesn't really have any experience with the many different ways real love makes an appearance.
Elinor is very much the woman who knows how to put her lipstick on and hide her crazy, as my mother would also say.
In other words, she's got the Sense and Sensibility not to share her hopes and dreams, inner turmoil, or just her business in general with everyone.
Because let's face it, Marrianne is ridiculous. Not her spirit, but her ideas of this perfect man and perfect love that will forever stamp your soul are just bonkers.
I think we all men and women start out with a little bit of Marrianne in ourselves. You only know what you know.
This means that young people aren't particularly stupid, they just haven't had enough LIFE slap them upside their heads yet.
But they will. Ooooooh, they will. At the same time, I don't think Elinor is a paragon of womanhood just because she managed to stuff each and every emotion deeeeeep into some secret hidey-hole in her psyche.
I can't help but think it would have been better for her to confide in someone Don't judge. We all have our ways of coping. Ok, ok. So, even if this wasn't my complete cuppa, it's still a fantastic story and a must for anyone who is Austen-curious.
As always, she wrote characters who were for the times true to life, fully formed, and definitely worth reading about.

Um, the end! But it was funny. But clever funny, which is my favorite kind. And I enjoyed deciphering the late 18th century prose. It made me feel smart, just to figure out what she was saying half the time!
Also I love all the wacky British society stuff. Like sending notes! And walking places! And having breakfast at other peoples' houses! And I enjoyed figuring out This is my first Jane Austen.
And I enjoyed figuring out the etiquette of the day. Like, it's improper to exchange letters with a member of the opposite sex with whom you are not engaged?
But it's cool to be engaged and not TELL anyone? I love it. I didn't get a chance to return this to the library right away, so I'm currently audio-book free, and instead of listening to music like a normal person, I STARTED IT OVER AGAIN.
Seriously, who would think I would like Jane Austen so much? The narrator was Donada Peters. I've never heard of her before, but she did a great job.
I don't think I'd've enjoyed it nearly as much had I actually had to READ the thing. I am now going to listen to every Austen audiobook I can get my hands on, and also a biography.
I'm reading Frank Herbert and Jane Austen at once! View all 9 comments. Yet, in the absence of a dashing figure like Darcy, it is a tiny fraction less adored than Pride and Prejudice.
But for me, the power of Sense and Sensibility lies in the wonderful duality and antithesis that characterizes the work of our beloved Jane Austen, an antithesis that is found in the characters and the themes of her marvellous stories.
The unbreakable and intense relationships between sensibility, emotion, sympathy and passion, and sense, wisdom, clear thinking and moderation.
Enthusiastic love and the hurtful decision to suppress your pain for the sake of your family. Two sisters, two worlds. So different, so alike.
The beautiful, serene and yet tumultuous universe of Jane Austen. Skip the awful film adaptation, indulge in the beautiful BBC version.
Why is there so much stupidity in this world and what can we do about it? Apr 26, Luffy rated it really liked it.
This book nearly failed the Bechdel test. There were an equal assortment of men and women, only the men seem to have a lemming like migratory bent, and fly from the nest for some reason or other.
Elinor is a blueprint for heroines that are strong. At least we can agree on the fact that most strong heroines in films are indistinguishable from men.
But here there cannot be such confusion. I was not immune to the charms of Sense and sensibility. It was very tough for me to read.
At least I was now pr This book nearly failed the Bechdel test. At least I was now prepared for the style of this classic.
I thought that the men in the book were all expendable. In this way, the 19th century seemed like a futuristic society. Eerie but true.
Jul 09, Eric Althoff rated it it was ok. Hmmm, how to critique one of the most revered writers of romance literature?
Now, before all of your Jane-ites get on my case for being unromantic or whatever, let me say only that unfortuantely, I read "Persuasion," Austen's last novel, and found it to be one of the best books I've ever read.
Now having read "Sense and Sensibility," I will say that it truly doese feel like a first novel, as if the author was still trying to find her voice.
So I've done the bookends of Austen, much like a concer Hmmm, how to critique one of the most revered writers of romance literature?
So I've done the bookends of Austen, much like a concert of Beethoven's 1st and 9th symphonies Her prose is art, but the story, in my opinion, is lacking.
Two semi-rich young women do the social dance with men who are alternately gentlemanly or cads, reversals and revelations ensue, followed at the end by weddings which are not exactly meant to leave us with the warmest of feelings as many weddings do.
Many of the characters are unlikable some are downright despicable and I felt all along that much like Shakespeare, Austen's stories are meant to be performed rather than read, so that the subtleties of the social ingraces and the sublimations of true feelings can be more truly experienced by an audience.
The plot itself is anything but complicated and I'm sorry to say that without Austen's ingenious prose, this novel would barely merit a footnote in history.
My recommendation for those of you who are not hardcore Austen fans, read "Persuasion" instead. View all 23 comments. After this second read, I'm compelled to amend my first review, for my perspective of the book is quite altered.
This debut publication of Jane Austen is, in my view, a complete book in itself, an excellent introduction of Jane Austen to the world of classical literature.
On this second read, the first surprise I was in for is the dramatic quality of the book on the whole.
I've certainly missed that. The actions, the suspense, the wealth of emotions it arouses are beyond comparison.
It is powerf After this second read, I'm compelled to amend my first review, for my perspective of the book is quite altered. It is powerful and strong, and also theatrical.
The reading experience was very satisfying and rewarding, for it was not mere reading, it was also seeing the story come alive before you.
I didn't read, I lived it. The story is, of course, focused on the lives, loves, desires, longings, and characters of the Dashwood sisters. Elinor is the kind, devoted and reasonable sort with rare strength and fortitude.
Marianne, on the other hand, although kind and devoted, is impulsive, emotional, and opinionated.
The popular and accepted character interpretation of Elinor and Marianne is that former representing sense and the latter sensibility. There has long been debate whether Austen favoured one quality over the other—sense or sensibility—or whether she favored an equal dose of both as the best recipe for life.
Sense and Sensibility was a success upon publication, and it later was adapted for film, stage, and television.
Among the most notable adaptations is the movie , which was directed by Ang Lee and starred Emma Thompson Elinor , who won an Academy Award for her adapted screenplay; Kate Winslet Marianne ; Hugh Grant Edward Ferrars ; and Alan Rickman Colonel Brandon.

Please refer to the appropriate style manual or other sources if you have any questions. The Norton Critical Edition of Sense and Sensibility, edited by Claudia Johnson, contains a number of reprinted early reviews in its supplementary material.
An "Unsigned Review" in the February Critical Review praises Sense and Sensibility as well written with well supported and drawn characters, realistic, and with a "highly pleasing" plot in which "the whole is just long enough to interest the reader without fatiguing.
Dashwood, the mother of the Dashwood sisters, as well as Elinor, and claims that Marianne's extreme sensibility makes her miserable.
In this author's opinion, Austen's favouring of Elinor's temperament over Marianne's provides the lesson. Pollock's review from Frasier's Magazine , titled "British Novelists," becomes what editor Claudia Johnson terms an "early example of what would become the customary view of Sense and Sensibility.
Jennings, even commenting on the humour of Mr. Palmer and his "silly wife. He also criticizes the Steele sisters for their vulgarity. An anonymous piece titled "Miss Austen" published in in The Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine departs from other early criticism in its sympathizing with Marianne over Elinor, claiming that Elinor is "too good" a character.
Meynell claims that Austen deals in lesser characters and small matters because "that which makes life, art, and work trivial is a triviality of relations.
Austen biographer Claire Tomalin argues that Sense and Sensibility has a "wobble in its approach", which developed because Austen, in the course of writing the novel, gradually became less certain about whether sense or sensibility should triumph.
She also acknowledges that Willoughby, with all his faults, continues to love and, in some measure, appreciate Marianne.
For these reasons, some readers find Marianne's ultimate marriage to Colonel Brandon an unsatisfactory ending. The Dashwood sisters stand apart as being virtually the only characters capable of intelligent thought and any sort of deep thinking.
Many critics explore Sense and Sensibility in relation to authors and genres popular during Austen's time. One of the most popular forms of fiction in Austen's time was epistolary fiction.
This is a style of writing in which all of the action, dialogue, and character interactions are reflected through letters sent from one or more of the characters.
In her book Romantic Correspondence: Women, Politics, and the Fiction of Letters, Mary Favret explores Austen's fraught relationship with epistolary fiction, claiming that Austen "wrestled with epistolary form" in previous writings and, with the publication of Sense and Sensibility, "announced her victory over the constraints of the letter.
A common theme of Austen criticism has been on the legal aspects of society and the family, particularly wills, the rights of first and second sons, and lines of inheritance.
Gene Ruoff's book Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility explores these issues in a book-length discussion of the novel. Ruoff's first two chapters deal extensively with the subject of wills and the discourse of inheritance.
These topics reveal what Ruoff calls "the cultural fixation on priority of male birth. Ruoff observes that, within the linear family, the order of male birth decides issues of eligibility and merit.
Feminist critics have long been engaged in conversations about Jane Austen, and Sense and Sensibility has figured in these discussions, especially around the patriarchal system of inheritance and earning.
Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar's seminal feminist work The Madwoman in the Attic: The Woman Writer and the Nineteenth-Century Imagination contains several discussions of Sense and Sensibility.
Gilbert and Gubar read the beginning of Sense and Sensibility as a retelling of King Lear from a female perspective and contend that these "reversals imply that male traditions need to be evaluated and reinterpreted from a female perspective.
In Sense and Sensibility they educe the fact that Mr. John Dashwood deprives his sisters from their home as well as promised income as an instance of these effects.
They also point to the "despised" Mrs. Ferrars's tampering with the patriarchal line of inheritance in her disowning of her eldest son, Edward Ferrars, as proof that this construction is ultimately arbitrary.
Ferrars and Lucy Steele demonstrate how women can "themselves become agents of repression, manipulators of conventions, and survivors. Ferrars and Lucy Steele must participate in the same patriarchal system that oppresses them.
In the chapter " Sense and Sensibility: Opinions Too Common and Too Dangerous" from her book Jane Austen: Women, Politics, and the Novel, Claudia Johnson also gives a feminist reading of Sense and Sensibility.
She differs from previous critics, especially the earliest ones, in her contention that Sense and Sensibility is not, as it is often assumed to be, a "dramatized conduct book" that values "female prudence" associated with Elinor's sense over "female impetuosity" associated with Marianne's sensibility.
Johnson calls the gentlemen in Sense and Sensibility "uncommitted sorts" who "move on, more or less unencumbered, by human wreckage from the past.
Johnson compares Edward to Willoughby in this regard, claiming that all of the differences between them as individuals do not hide the fact that their failures are actually identical; Johnson calls them both "weak, duplicitous, and selfish," lacking the honesty and forthrightness with which Austen endows other "exemplary gentlemen" in her work.
Mary Poovey's analysis in The Proper Lady and the Woman Writer: Ideology as Style in the Works of Mary Wollstonecraft , Mary Shelley and Jane Austen concurs with Johnson's on the dark tone of Sense and Sensibility.
Poovey contends that Sense and Sensibility has a "somber tone" in which conflict breaks out between Austen's engagement with her "self-assertive characters" and the moral codes necessary to control their potentially "anarchic" desires.There is no testimony anywhere that can deter her being one of the greatest authors of her Karte Frankreich Corona Sense And Sensibility even now.
