Ranking the Best Book-to-Film Adaptations in the History of Cinema

24. Sense & Sensibility

Sense & Sensibility was Jane Austen’s first published novel. It was an unabashed romantic novel with a side order of biting social critique. Emma Thompson penned the screenplay and starred alongside Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant in what is accepted as the best Austen adaptation to date. Ang Lee’s adaptation remained resolutely faithful to the mores of the early 19th Century.
