Sense and Sensibility

“UNMISTAKABLE FUN . . .” ~ LOS ANGELES TIMES

Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility is one of the most popular novels by one of the most beloved authors of all time. Born in the late 18th century, she wrote with great insight and wit about the lives of the English upper middle class. Her characters seem to drift through the inescapable life of leisure that only privilege can afford, yet are forever negotiating the reality of birthright and custom. Sense & Sensibility poignantly and cleverly illustrates the effects of economic uncertainty brought about by the common practice of the first-born male inheriting entire family fortunes, often leaving the rest of the family to fend for themselves. The characters live in a world in which choices are limited - especially for the women. The story revolves around the lives of two sisters, Elinor, who is levelheaded and full of sense, and the hopelessly romantic, Marianne. After the untimely and unexpected death of their father, both sisters and their mother are forced to leave their comfortable lives, while their half-brother and his wife inherit the family estate. The only hope for these two sisters is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy.
