Many of us have quite a clear idea of what we like and don't like from the last two Sense and Sensibility adaptations.  So, to see what are the favorites of all the participants in S&S Week I am putting up five polls on my left sidebar.

My favorite Sense and Sensibility is the 1995 movie, though I also enjoyed the 2008 miniseries. I thought that Emma Thompson was the better Elinor, Kate Winslet the better Marianne, Dan Stevens the better Edward, and Alan Rickman the better Colonel Brandon.

I really enjoyed the cast from S&S 2008. I love Hattie Monahan, Charity Wakefield, Dan Stevens and the fact that all of the cast seemed to be young and fresh and suit the characters. S&S 1995 was my first love though and that Colonel Brandon, Mrs. Jennings, Fanny Dashwood, Mr. Willoughby and Charlotte Palmer will always have a place in my Jane Austen favorites.
I also like the 1981 BBC adaptation quite well, it's a very faithful adaptation but not that exciting.
Fun polls! :)

I like them both! I'm not sure I could pick one.
My favorite Edward, Colonel Brandon, and Marianne are the 2008 actors. I like Emma Thompson as Elinor. Kate Winslet just seems a little to old to be sixteen to me:)
