Thompson also stars as the drama-romance reserved Elinor Dashwood and Kate Winslet (A Little Chaos) as her more impulsive younger sister, navigating a world in which love and money are often distressingly intertwined. They’re joined by the scintillating likes of Hugh Grant (Cloud Atlas), Alan Rickman (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2), Imelda Staunton (The Awakening), and Hugh Laurie (Tomorrowland), wickedly funny in a small, scene-stealing role.

The film’s superlative score by Patrick Doyle is available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to keep an eye on the Twilight Time site or that of their distributor Screen Archives’s for the announcement of the prebook date (usually 2-3 weeks before the title’s street date) and get ready to reserve!
