DVD: Sense and Sensibility (1981 / 1985)

Enjoyed this version of the Jane Austen classic.  It is very slow moving and detailed; without the modern slant of the 1995 screenplay staring Emma Thompson.  Margaret Dashwood, the youngest sister, is non-existent in this version, but it allows more focus on Elenor and Marianne and their relationships.

This movie is a wonderful stitching companion, though I do wish it included more scenes with the characters doing needlework.
