Elinor, Edward and Lucy

Lunchtime. Long rehearsal with Imogen Stubbs as Lucy, in the scene where Edward comes in and finds her with Elinor. There are eighteen setups. It will take two days. […] Very difficult scene and all a little tired but good concentration nonetheless. Four people in a room, each with entirely different motives and reactions to the same situation… – Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility Diaries)

What is your favorite Elinor moment?

I personally prefer the scene where Marianne, Margaret and Mrs Dashwood, all crying retire to their own rooms off the same landing and Elinor stands still with Marianne’s cup of tea in her hand, then she sits on the stairs and drinks tea.

The scene is both hilarious and desperate and I love it.

Stage dresses

Let’s examine in this case the clothes worn to shoot the last scene of Sense and sensibility, taking place outside the church.

Elinor and Edward attend Brandon and Marianne’s wedding ceremony: she wears a gown with a long train, with burgundy velvet inserts and a bonnet decorated with ribbon and flowers.

Edward wears an elegant black suit embellished with velvet buttons on the coat and a dark hat.

I found the photos online, looking through this blog.
