It's time for
AUSTEN MOVIE ADAPTATION
Who did it better? Which cast nailed the chemistry? Which director clearly did their Austen homework? Which soundtrack was most cringe-worthy?
I'm breaking down the best-known Jane Austen film adaptations for you, one novel at a time.
Next up is the original Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants:
Sense & Sensibility
Production date: 1981
Runtime: 174 min
Production date: 2008
Runtime: 180 min
Production date: 1995
Runtime: 131 min
(anybody else notice a pattern of Marianne having curls and Elinor not? What are you trying to say, directors?)
Looking for a modern adaptation?
