When two sisters appear to be deserted by the young men they had intended to marry, the stage is set for a delicious comedy of manners that not only showcases author Jane Austen's perception, humor and incomparable prose, but offers a splendid glimpse of upper and middle-class early 19th century English society. Elinor and Marianne Dashwood have opposite approaches when it comes to the pursuit of love. One is tempered and rational, the other impulsive and full of youthful passion. The sisters attract a trio of suitors -- handsome Edward Ferrars, heroic Colonel Brandon, and effusive John Willoughby. But are the men as genuine as they seem? Adapted from Jane Austen's classic novel. Rated G
