Last week we talked about the 2 most recent versions of Persuasion; this week we're taking on Sense & Sensibility. Now, this has the potential to be really unfair to the 2008 version, as the 1995 film was this insane award-winning juggernaut, but before you all rush to say 1995!!! please take a moment to really consider it. As much as I, too, love Emma Thomspon's screenplay, I think there are a lot of things the 2008 version nailed, and it deserves a closer look.
If you've seen both, feel free to skip the trailers and weigh in (or watch them to refresh your memory), and if you've seen only one (or neither - yes, you can vote if you haven't seen them!), please watch the two objectively, consider which appeals to you more as a film and which seems to work best as an adaptation, and then let us know which you're voting for in the comments!
Last Week on FFO: The 1995 and 2007 versions of Persuasion went head to head, and as expected, the 1995 version one (though there were some honorable mentions for the 1971 version, for text faithfulness).
