Jane Austen's classic tale of two very different sisters. Tracey Childs plays the young Marianne, with her passionate hunger for emotional experience & Irene Richard plays her sister Elinor, outwardly so cool & collected.
The 1981 version has the horrible, blurry video quality you'd expect from 1981 (see the picture of the old version). This 2008 miniseries is exquisitely filmed, sharp and high resolution with modern, gorgeous cinematography, what to speak of the acting, etc.
This BBC production was made in 1981, and it looks like it. It looks very wooden next to the thrilling Oscar-winning Emma Thomson version that hit cinema screens 12 years later, and was eclipsed again by the BBC's superb 2003 production (starring Hattie Morahan). Both offer a much more lively and colourful retelling than we get here.
