Storyline

When Mr. Dashwood dies, he leaves his Sussex estate Norland -undivided, as the law requires- to his first marriage son John. John's wife, Fanny, convinces him to deny, in the name of their only son Henry's inheritance, his widowed stepmother and her three daughters the generosity understood at pap's deathbed. When the heiress-in-law's brother Edward Ferrars visits, he proves a perfect, understanding gentleman mutually drawn to eldest daughter Elinor, but she's told mother Ferrars makes inheriting the vast family fortune conditional on marrying well. Once mother comes to terms with their impoverished status, she accepts country relative Sir John Middleton's offer to rent his cottage in Devonshire without even seeing it, and moves with only two servants, Thomas and Alice.

Goofs

Elinor's birth year, revealed on screen in the Dashwood family bible as 1781, along with her stated age of 19 years firmly establishes the setting of the story in 1800. Therefore Willoughby's discussion with Marianne about Lord Byron's poetry is anachronistic because Byron was born in 1788 and is only twelve years of age at the time his poetry is being discussed by the characters.
