"Sense and Sensibility" and a Small Sketch

I have long been a fan of the 1995 movie "Sense and Sensibility" with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet. I felt it is the best movie ever. I still feel so, but recently I had the opportunity to see another version of it that has Hattie Morahan and Charity Wakefield. I think this one ( a TV miniseries by BBC, directed by Andrew Davies) is just as lovely, except of course for the Emma Thompson magic. But nothing to take away from Hattie Morahan who has been just as fabulous. 


I think the world has been deprived of some fine literature because Jane Austen died at the age of 36. I an wathc these movies at least a thousand times and not get bored. Do you guys feel the same way?


Thanks for reading so far. I will leave you with a small sketch I did the other day.

I LOVE Jane Austen too!!! I completely agree with you, is Alan Rickman in that version? I think he is and he is just awesome, along with Emma Thompson of course. :)

And Vinayak as always your sketch is simply beautiful. I love to see the strokes of your pencil and the expression you've captured. The sketch below is just as beautiful. Nice work!
