PG | | Drama, Romance
Rich Mr. Dashwood dies, leaving his second wife and her three daughters poor by the rules of inheritance. The two eldest daughters are the titular opposites.
The green velvet Spencer vest Kate Winslet (Marianne Dashwood) wears walking in the rain at Cleveland is the same costume Elizabeth Berrington (Charlotte) wears in Quills (2000), and Sally Hawkins (Anne Elliot) wears to the concert at the Bath Assembly Rooms in Persuasion (2007).
Lovers' quarrels are swift to heal.
When Marianne and Margaret stand on top of the hill in the rain, Marianne's dress is wet. When she runs down the hill, it is suddenly mostly dry. Then when she trips and falls down, her dress changes to totally sodden through and dirty between shots.
