This is possibly the best ever Jane Austen adaptation. Ang Lee simply shows his extreme talent in directing a film. The fast, suspenseful and assured direction of this film stuns everyone, and the audiences have to hold the breath all the time because they never know what will happen in the next minute. Emma Thompson is perhaps too good for her role, and I cannot understand why she did not win her second Oscar. Kate Winslet breaks out in this particularly well-scripted movie, and this movie was exactly the reason why she was cast for Titanic. The music score, make-up and production design are just beyond words.
