Sense and Sensibility

Sense and Sensibility

I watched Sense and Sensibility last night (it was a re-watch but it had been a long time). It was on sale at Target last week for $4.75—cheaper than a rental in my neck of the woods. So, there I was, watching this wonderful movie by myself, folding laundry, and loving it. It was very enjoyable and relaxing, just to have some time all to myself.

I had forgotten how much I liked this movie. So beautiful. I laughed and cried out loud—at the same time!—during the last scene with Elinor and Edward. It is just a wonderful scene.
Anyway, after the movie, I decided to put Pride and Prejudice (the miniseries) in my Blockbuster Online queue, and then I took a little quiz that tells you which Jane Austen heroine you are most like. I have seen it on the Internet before, but now I decided to do it. I guess I am most like Elizabeth Bennett. Who knew? Even when I was torn between a couple of possible answers, and I went back and put the other one in (is that cheating?), I still turned up as Elizabeth Bennett. So, now I really have to re-watch Pride and Prejudice soon! Oh, I hope my husband doesn’t mind, maybe as long as I follow it up with a bunch of action, sci-fi films. LOL
If you’re interested in taking the quiz, too, you can click on the icon at the right of my posts.

  1. I'm Elinor Dashwood. Dernit, I'm too responsible, I guess. Or is the word Boring? Geesh. I'm a huge fan of the BBC version of P & P. I have this S & S on dvd as well. An inexpensive Target find as well.

  2. I just caught the middle to end of this on PBS! I don’t know why I watch shows from the middle, but it was great. By the way, I thought Elinor was an interiorly romantic woman and NOT boring! Anyway, now I need to go back and watch the whole movie. I’m a huge Jane Austen fan.

  3. Definitely not boring, Sarah! I like the BBC version of P&P, too; that's the one I hope to watch again soon.

    I agree with you, Suzie, I think Elinor is a very romantic woman, too. She just didn't wear her heart on her sleeve like her sister … I actually was surprised I didn't come out as Elinor myself … Hmmm!

    So many of Austen's characters are so good but their goodness comes out in such unique ways.
