Jane Austen Movie Throwdown

Today is Mother's Day and I wish much happiness and joy to all the mothers who read this blog. In today's Jane Austen Movie Throwdown we ask you to consider the mothers in Sense and Sensibility, and to rank them from the best mother to the worst. I used the images from 2008 Sense and Sensibility, except in the case of Mrs. Palmer, whose image I took from the 1996 film. This week we ask you to

I think Mrs Palmer and Lady Middleton take after their mother and her example in parental love and kindness. Wasn't it Mrs Dashwood who said that Mrs Jennings was an excellent woman? and that's saying much coming from the most tenderhearted mother in S&S. I think I'd like to have Mrs Jennings as a mother, she a bit eccentric but cares very much for those she truly loves. She also gets good husbands!

I think Mrs. Dashwood and Mrs. Jennings are the best mothers. Although one is very rich and the other is not, their love and devotion for their children, families and friends is admirable and worth emulating !

Mrs Ferrars was the worst!
