Save the Date: Sense & Sensibility Watch Along + Twitter Party

To go along with our Sense & Sensibility Read Along, we're also having another Watch Along this year -- and you guessed it, it's for S&S!  Now, the debate over which version is the best -- 1995 or 2007 -- will forever rage on, but the decision of which to watch this year was an east one: the 2007 miniseries is available on Hulu. Though I have a healthy stock of Austen movies, I try to make our watch-alongs something readily available for those who don't.
(Plus, this version is just damn good. Some may say, the best.

Because this is a longer version (originally a mini-series), it'll be split up into two parts over two weeks, one each Saturday.
The Deets:
  • Sense and Sensibility watch along, part ONE: Saturday, August 27th at 8pm EST
  • Sense and Sensibility watch along, part TWO: Saturday, September 3rd at 8pm EST
  • Watch and chat along on Twitter with the hashtag #AustenInAugust
  • The film is available for streaming on Hulu, or for digital rental on Amazon
These viewings will be part of an overall Austen Movie Weekend going on during both AIA weekends, so keep an eye on the blog, too, for some more Austen film goodies! 

I hope some of you will be able to join me in watching and tweeting along, but even if you can't make the live discussion, please feel free to hop on the #AustenInAugust tag at any point and share your opinions, whether about S&S or any other Austen-ish thing!

  1. Fun! I actually have no clear preference between those two adaptions since there are pros and cons to both for me. I'll try to make it.

  2. Yay! I hope I can, although being a West Coastie it depends on whether we're done with chores for the day (ugh, adulting). I'm stoked it's available in streaming, as I haven't actually ever seen this one. I just finished the 1970s one (don't bother) and of course the 1995 one is famous (Alan Rickman + Emma Thompson in any movie = yay). A mini-series seems like the right pace.

  3. I do love your Twitter chats Misty!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
