Sense and Sensibility - 5

Based on the Jane Austen novel, this film deals with 19th century British high society. In a similar vain to Howard's End, Dangerous Liaisons, and Vanity Fair (Although a lot less scandalous). The story follows the plight of two daughters who were not able to inherit their father's fortune and are looking for marriage. One plays the romantic while the other is a realist. In the end, through different sorts of heart break they find the love of their life. I wanted to see this film to learn more about the director Ang Lee, it seems that he is a good director but mostly because he knows how to pick good stories to tell (Hulk being the one exception).
