After the premiere, Emma Thompson visited Jane Austen’s grave to tell her about the box office. This joke she trawled, receiving the Oscar for Best Screenplay. Well, if we are to present the Golden Boy, then obviously not Emma, ââbut Jane, but in general, there is nothing special in this story; rather, nothing to distinguish Sense and Sensibility from Pride and Prejudice or, say, Mandsfield Park. All books are written in the same minor key, and if you like it, then you will also like Ang Lee’s film.
To me personally, Mrs. Austen’s measured narratives are very impressed, the nerves calm down, the soul is touched, the eye rejoices, etc. Ang Lee shot the film exactly as it should: transferred to film and the harsh English landscapes, and strict Victorian manners, and the unenviable fate of homeless women and decency armored British gentlemen, and the measured life of the petty nobility in the rural outback, and the heartfelt dramas of two very different sisters.
It was shot great, the characters were revealed, and the actors were chosen very well, not counting, of course, Hugh Grant, but I have a persistent prejudice for that, so I judge it biased. He is an Englishman, it is clear, and, accordingly, his nature is squeezed, rational, crushed by decency and dignity, but in reality he was just an unreasonably tight brake on the energy-saving mode. Maybe the country air influenced him so? Or local food? Oh no, sorry, education. Although, Colonel Brandon did not differ in particular emotionality and freedom in behavior, so God is with them, both actors are English, they know better how to play their ancestors.
Grant, I remember, I liked only in one film – “The Lady and the Robber”, but then I was ten years old, and I had no idea who he was. But I consider Rickman an exceptional person, and I looked at him with all my eyes, shrieking at others so that they would not talk. I love Rickman: his crooked nose and crooked half-smile have a truly magical effect on me. Kate Winslet, to whom I have mixed feelings, this time fits in better than ever, her Marianne is Marianne Jane Austen, and if not for an Oscar, then for some smaller statue, her acting is clearly drawn.
I was pleasantly surprised by the realism when Thompson was approved for the role of spinster Eleanor Dashwood; judging by her appearance, she is really old, dull, suits Grant as a mother, and completely refutes the thesis: “A cold mind leaves the body young longer.” Interestingly, she herself rejected the services of a make-up artist on the set? Looking at her, I am amazed again and again, did she really star in Much Ado About Nothing by her then husband Branna? Is this the same woman?
