The black Spencer with flowers embroidered on the collar and sleeves worn by an extra in the London street when the Dashwoods arrive in London is the same costume worn by Jackie Smith-Wood (Mary Crawford) to walk with Fanny in Mansfield Park (1983), by an extra at the wedding in Pride and Prejudice (1995), and by Natasha Little (Augusta Leigh) to visit Byron at his London apartment in Byron (2003).

The scene: Elinor finds Edward chopping wood in the rain. We see Elinor approaching with her arms holding the shawl over her head and shoulders. When the shot shifts and we see Elinor from her back, the shawl is covering only her head, with arms over the shawl. See more »
A solid adaptation that didn't quite match up to the Ang Lee and Emma Thompson film. That had more energy, pace, intensity and humor. This is more lyrical and gentle, which works almost as well... for a while.
I actually loved the first two hours, but the last hour didn't work as well for me, perhaps because of the different overall tone tone. The climax felt more soap opera-ish, and also more uneven, with the slightly jarring attempts at humorous over the top characterizations clashing with the more subtle feel of the piece. The acting is generally excellent, but there were times when performers didn't quite seem to all be in the same film.
Worth seeing if you are an Austen fan, but if you only need one film version to be happy, I'd watch the Lee feature first.
