Sense and Sensibility is a story of two young sisters on a voyage of burgeoning sexual and romantic discovery. Rational Elinor Dashwood and her romantic sister Marianne are played by sensational newcomers Hattie Morahan (Elinor) and Charity Wakefield (Marianne).
The death of Elinor and Marianne\'s father throws their privileged world into chaos. With no entitlement to his estate, they are forced to live in poverty. Although the sisters\' chances of marriage seem doomed, attractive men are drawn to the girls.
