I finished Sense and Sensibility and really enjoyed it. After reading it we watched the famous, star-studded movie adaptation and I have to say while the acting was great I left it disappointed.

While I understand the need to cut characters and plot points to fit a novel into a movie, I felt that the key point of the story--Marianne's maturity into Elinor's retraint and composure as an idealized feminine form for the time--was skipped in favor of a straight-forward romance.

@kyle That's why I always try to watch first and read later, it's much better this way.
