Movies Inspired by Sense and Sensibility

Updated on July 27, 2017

Sense and Sensibility movies were based on a novel written by Jane Austen. It is about a mother and three daughters who are left without a home and money after the death of her husband, Mr. Dashwood. Everything of theirs is left to the son from the man’s first wife. They these three daughters and widowed mother had to live with some distant relatives. They began their lives there. Their lack of status and fortune cause some problems for them in finding proper suitors. It is full of romance and drama. Here are similar movies and mini series like that.

Scents and Sensibility

Sense and Sensibility Series

Scents and Sensibility

This movie is a very modern version of Jane Austen’s Novel Sense and Sensibility and it sticks to the original plot and the character names. It is about three sisters with their mother, who lost a great deal of wealth. They have to find their own way for making a living and money after their father went to jail. They are left with barely anything. Watch as they venture out to find work, the reactions they received and eventually what they found out was really important. It is very funny, romantic, totally clean, wholesome entertainment for all to watch.

Sense and Sensibility

This is the mini series to the movie, Sense and Sensibility. This is an intriguing drama about a widow and her three unmarried daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret. They inherited only a small portion of their inheritance and practically left penniless. The fortune went to her husband's son, John. He and his wife move in the manor. So the daughters and their mother had to move out of their grand Sussex home to much smaller cottage in Devonshire. It is there the three daughters aim to find appropriate husbands for the girls. I enjoyed it a lot and all the actors and actresses.


Persuasion (1995 & 2007 Version)

Persuasion is another Jane Austen film. It is about Anne Elliot who is the daughter of an aristocratic family and was encouraged to refuse a marriage offer from Frederick Wentworth. This is the man she loved. He was a sailor and because of his position and lack of fortune, he did was not well suited for her. Now Mr. Wentworth after a few years has gained wealth and position and looking for a wife and being pursued by other young ladies. As they cross paths, Anne has to go through the pain of the decision she made years ago.

The 1995 version stars Amanda Root, Ciaran Hinds, Susan Fleetwood and Corin Redgrave.

The 2007 version stars Sally Hawkins, Alice Krige, Rupert Penry-Jones, Anthony Head and Julia Davis.

Pride and Prejudice (2005)

This movie is based on Jane Austen’s Novel, Pride and Prejudice. It is about five sisters who’s lives are changed when the wealthy Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley comes to town. When Elizabeth Bennett meets the handsome and wealthy Mr. Darcy, she assumes he is proud and into himself. Elizabeth is a free spirited gal, but seems to cross paths with Mr. Darcy. She believed he is the last man on this planet that she could ever want and he believes she is beneath his high class society. What will happen with them? You will have to watch and see. This is one of the best versions of Pride and Prejudice.


Pride and Prejudice

The Buccaneers

The Buccaneers

This is a mini-series and the story about five determined American young women, who expressed a desire to take part in the London Season. They set off to England to experience the world of upper class English people. All the girls eventually find suitable husbands, but the Englishmen view of love and marriage is quite different from the Americans. This is a hard lesson they all had to go through and learn some things about life. These ladies are quite naïve and not quite prepared for the turmoil. It shows some real, powerful lessons which can be learned about love, marriage and relationships.

I have found it ( Kandukondain Kandukondain - orginial title)

This is the Indian version of Sense and Sensibility. This is the story of two sisters who come from a good family, and enjoyed a good life. Then the death of the girls' grandfather brought disastrous results. They forced to leave their own home and they lifestyle they know. They ended up moving to Madras and struggled there. Then things began to change. They long to find true love and three possible men place them on some romantic difficulties. It is wonderful romantic Indian film and many lessons to be learned.

Quotes from Sense and Sensibility

More Sense and Sensibility Quotes

"The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!”

"If I could but know his heart, everything would become easy.”

“You are in a melancholy humour, and fancy that any one unlike yourself must be happy. But remember that the pain of parting from friends will be felt by every body at times, whatever be their education or state. Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience- or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.”

“The longer they were together the more doubtful seemed the nature of his
regard, and sometimes for a few painful minutes she believed it to be no more
than friendship. "

The world had made him extravagant and vain--Extravagance and vanity had made him cold-hearted and selfish. Vanity, while seeking its own guilty triumph at the expense of another, had involved him in a real attachment, which extravagance, or at least its offspring necessity, had required to be sacrificed. Each faulty propensity in leading him to evil, had led him likewise to punishment."

"Careless of her happiness, thinking only of my own amusement, giving way to feelings which he had always been too much in the habit of indulging, I endeavored, by every means in my power, to make myself pleasing to her, without any design of returning her affections."
