Scents and Sensibility (2011) Vs From Prada to Nada (2011)

2011 gave us two very different modern reboots of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. Both very interesting movies, trying to put Sense and Sensibility in a different light.

Scents and Sensibility (2011)

Cast: Elinor Dashwood (Ashley Williams) and Marianne Dashwood (Marla Sokoloff)

  • Pro’s: It is very faithful to the novel, with the exception of a few modern changes.
  • Con’s: It screams Hallmark movie, which is fine if you enjoy that type of movie. It’s just a little bland for my taste.

From Prada to Nada (2011)

Cast: Nora Dominguez (Camille Belle) and Mary Dominguez (Alexa PenaVega)

  • Pro’s: This adaptation is very close to the book, again with some modern changes. I also like that there is an ethnic, multi-lingual flavor to this movie.
  • Con’s: None.

And the winner is…. From Prada to Nada. But that is my opinion. Maybe you prefer Scents and Sensibility.
