I agree, Sense and Sensibility directed by Ang Lee is one of the finest of the newly-remade Jane Austen stories (also do catch Persuasion if you can, wonderful PBS/BBC version with Ciaran Hinds). Ang Lee's version stars not only Thompson, Rickman, and Grant, but also Kate Winslet! How the bloody hell can you go wrong?!? They are all superb.
Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow is also very good, and what's the one with the man named D'arcy? Pride and Prejudice? Well if that is the title, there is another PBS/BBC one with Colin Firth and the lovely Jennifer Ehle (she is wonderful also in Bedrooms and Hallways, a hysterically funny comedy with Hugo Weaving, Tom Hollander, Simon Callow, Harriet Walter and Kevin McKidd), and as the "fictional' Victorian poet in Possession.
okay, now I am in the mood to watch all of these movies again, and to throw in Bridget Jones' Diary and The Shooting Party for good measure!
