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.
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.
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.
