Life Coach Cheryl Richardson Draws on the Wisdom of Jane Austen

Masterpiece Classic’s enhanced interactive website has added two new features in anticipation of the premier of Sense and Sensibility on Sunday night; behind the scenes production videos, and two nine minute podcasts by bestselling author and life coach Cheryl Richardson. Both of these new features offer insights into the making of the film Sense and Sensibility and how Jane Austen’s classic novel set in the early 19th-century can be applied to our lives today.

The videos include interviews of the writer, designers, director and the cast, and lead us into the thought processes to create this stunning new adaptation. Life coach Cheryl Richards asks the question, is Jane Austen trying to tell you something about your life, and explores the plot and characters throughout the film to discover lessons and applications to our 21st-century lives

In addition to the plot synopsis and cast & credits, you will find a listing of characters with a hierarchy of how they fit into the story and additional information about the actors who portray them.

Be sure to watch episode one of the Masterpiece Classic presentation of Sense and Sensibility on Sunday, March 30th at 9:00 pm on PBS. Also, don't forget to read the review of the film by our guest blogger Barbara Larochelle, discussion moderator with The Republic of Pemberley. Her post sits below.
