Sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood have opposite approaches when it comes to the pursuit of love. One is tempered and rational, the other impulsive and full of youthful passion. The sisters attract a trio of suitors - handsome Edward Ferrars, heroic Colonel Brandon, and effusive John Willoughby. But are the men as genuine as they seem? A romantic odyssey full of seduction and abandonment unfolds in Andrew Davies's bold adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel.
