When Elinor Dashwood's father dies, her family's finances are crippled. After the Dashwoods move to a cottage in Devonshire, Elinor's sister Marianne is torn between the handsome John Willoughby and the older Colonel Brandon. Meanwhile, Elinor's romantic hopes with Edward Ferrars are hindered due to his prior engagement. Both Elinor and Marianne strive for love while the circumstances in their lives constantly change, in this adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved book.

'A beautifully-crafted, witty, moving film likely to overcome even the stiffest Austen prejudice' - Deborah Brown, Empire
