This is the best version of Austen's novel and a simply super film. Every scene captivates whether it is waspish Harriet Walter, married to the girls' stepbrother (James Fleet) pontificating, or Robert Hardy and Elizabeth Spriggs as the jovial cousin and his stepmother, who offer the almost destitute Dashwoods a home in Devon, who bring fun and games and humour to the playing out of the story.
I love this film and Emma Thompson's witty, lively script well won its Oscar. Recommended highly.
