Is it just me?

                                                           The 1981 Sense and Sensibility 

   I just brought this home from the library and I am soon going to watch it. For some reason I picked it up and wanted to watch it. Though I do know that there is only one S&S that is perfect ... I do have a interest in seeing this version.
  So wish me luck. Not that I would need it because I am just watching a Jane Austen film. ;) And is it just me or does Edward Farrars look old (really old) in this?

  God Bless you all,


  1. Yes, he does look a bit old but he's very gentlemanly and kind and more like the Edward of the book in his manners I think.

    I also really like Elinor in this one, it took me a few viewings before I was able to figure out exactly what it was I liked about her because she does seem cold sometimes but it's just she feels so deeply and tries to maintain that sensible, brace exterior.

    Also the Willoughby in this is probably my favorite. And I love the song that Marianne and Willoughby sing together. This version does leave out Margaret though which is a shame because in every other way it is a very charming adaptation. Hope you enjoy! :)

  2. I watched this one, and, this is just my own opinion, but I did not think it was that wonderful. Mr. Ferrars is old and kind of strange, and so is Colonel Brandon. I guess you could say what do you expect from an 80s version of a Jane Austen book, but I still was not thrilled. Just a warning. :)

  3. Oh please tell me how it is! Yes Mr Farrars does look frightfully old!


  4. Ooh, you're seeing that version! I've been wanting to watch it, especially since knowing that the actress playing Marianne in this version played Suzanne in the Scarlet Pimpernel 1982.

  5. This adaptation is enjoyable, though does not compare to 1995 or 2008 versions. Just be prepared that it was created in the 80's, so the acting and film quality is VERY 80's. Edward is older looking in this adaptation, especially because of the receding hairline.
