Helena Bonham Carter,
A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and their three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery John Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried.

Among the several happy working and hunting dogs running around the Barton Park Estate, one is very obviously a Golden Retriever. However, the 'Flat Coat Golden Retriever', as we would recognize it today, was not bred until the 1880's. The breed was first accepted by the The Kennel Club of England in 1903, and was not officially named 'Golden Retriever' until 1920, more than 100 years after the setting of the movie. See more »
It is a very great secret. I've told nobody in the world for fear of discovery.
I am the soul of discretion.
If I dared tell...
I can assure you, I'm as silent as the grave.
[Lucy whispers in Fanny's ear; Fanny's kindly disposition changes abruptly]
[turning against Lucy, enraged and horrified]
Viper in my bosom!

A true story of family, friends, sisterhood, heartbreak, and love
I found "Sense and Sensibilty" to be one of the most charming movies I have seen since "Finding Neverland". It has a very warm feeling and is very welcoming. The story is absolutely beautiful. In the 1990's, all of Jane Austen's huge novels were made into movies and some even in television series. Most of them were very good, but Sense and Sensibility really stood out and was the best. Most thanks to Emma Thompson and her brilliant screenplay, which was also her first. Kudos to her, she seems like a fine and intelligent woman. I found out that this screenplay took her about 4 years to have the final draft done. She also couldn't translate some of the novel into the book so she took some of Austen's letters and put them into the movie.
The acting is absolutely on key and all of the actors fit quite well into their roles. I enjoy period pieces thourelly, if you don't, you might want to skip it. But I would recommend this picture any day. It's very beautiful and a wonderful movie to watch. It has some of the finest British actors: Allen Rickman, Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, and Hugh Grant. So give it a chance, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
