This dynamic adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved tale of the Dashwood sisters - level-headed Elinor and passionate Marianne - provides a spring romance to finish out the season. In early 1800s England, Elinore and Marianne must navigate a significant change in social position and an array of potential suitors to find the right balance between "sense" and "sensibility."
