Trivia: The windowpane check gown Emma Thompson (Elinor Dashwood) wears while explaining Col. Brandon's offer to Edward is the same costume Billie Piper (Fanny Price) wears in Mansfield Park (2007) (TV), Rosamund Stephen (Henrietta Musgrove) wears in Persuasion (2007) (TV), Victoria Hopkins in "The Regency House Party" (2004), and Honeysuckle Weeks in the sketch "Plots & Proposals" in Victoria Wood with All the Trimmings (2000) (TV). The same costume is also worn by an extra at the London party where Byron meets Annabella Milbanke in Byron (2003) (TV).
Goofs: Crew or equipment visible: In the library scene, when Margaret has her back to the camera, her battery pack microphone is clearly visible attached to her waist.
"When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility"
