Sense and Sensibility

The world can never have too many adaptation of Jane Austen novels, in my opinion. So, of course, when I came across a 2008 BBC version of Sense and Sensibility at the library last week, I had to check it out. I enjoyed watching it. Good to decent acting by everyone, beautiful scenery and good period clothing, and Austen's characters brought to life quite well. However, it did seem to move more slowly than needed; the movie is 174 minutes long.

My husband thought the only worthwhile thing in the movie was that one of the characters was played by the actor who is Mr. Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. (Men just don't get obsessed with Jane Austen, do they?)
