This classic period film ages like a fine red wine. It is best savoured with good company, who will appreciate all of the delightful nuances that is a classic Jane Austen novel. Originally released in the mid 90's, the film was a huge box office success and received seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actress. First time writer Emma Thompson added much of the humorous interplay between characters and quite rightly received the award for Best Adapted Screenplay. She also appears Elinor Dashwood alongside a delightful Kate Winslet who plays younger sister Marianne. Add in a bumbling Hugh Grant and the sultry tones of Alan Rickman along with superb direction by Ang Lee, and the film becomes a timeless classic, very much enjoyed today as it was when it was released over 25 years ago. 5 Sensible Stars.
