Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls for charming but unsuitable John Willoughby, her romantic disappointment is a secret from no one - much to the dismay of her sister Elinor, who fears for her reputation. By contrast, cautious Elinor appears to be mistress of her feelings - not even Marianne knows of the heartbreak she is nursing. Can the sisters, in pursuit of happiness, find a balance between prudence and passion?
