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 title opposites.
A largely dull character in the novel, Edward Ferrars - the potential suitor for Elinor Dashwood - was given more personality by the casting of Hugh Grant. Dame Emma Thompson deliberately wrote the part with Grant in mind.
My only real concern is how long it will take them to move out.
When Mrs Dashwood stands alone looking at the paintings on the wall in Saltram House, there is a portrait of Oscar Wilde. The movie takes place in 1810, he would not be born for another 46 years.
