Ang Lee United Kingdom, 1995

Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Sense and Sensibility

Perhaps the only period drama of this period and style that I can really respect and enjoy watching because it's not trying too hard to act and emulate it. The actors play their characters and not their historical fashionings. Ang Lee's approach is less obsessed with rubbing your nose in the time period and more focused on its relation to the story at hand and the people in it. Far better than Wright's "P&P".
