Countdown to Matrimony: Wedding Movie #14

Posted on: December 31, 2010

Sense and Sensibility: What’s not to love? Emma Thompson acts 28. Kate Winslet’s frightening curls to go with her frightening emotion. Hugh Grant walks around as if he’d just been kicked in the nads. Emma had had a relationship with Willoughby and wound up divorcing no-lips from Henry V and marrying Greg Wise. Movie message relates to the injustices women endure with inheritance and marriage. Marriage is the only choice and should you choose for love or for practicality? Wouldn’t it be nice to have both? Such is the Austen way. Or rather, things turn out better than you could have imagined. My favorite scene is when Alan Rickman throws money into the air at the end. Such a nice thing to do.
