Cardiff University, Main Building, Wallace Lecture Theatre
Part of Cardiff University’s Creative Minds Festival
To celebrate the bicentenary of the publication of Jane Austen’s first novel, Sense and Sensibility (1811), join us for a screening of Ang Lee’s 1995 Oscar-winning film adaptation, starring Emma Thompson and
Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are two strikingly different sisters. Both are in love – Elinor with respectable Edward Ferrars and Marianne with John Willoughby, attractive but very unsuitable. But when they find out
that both men are engaged to other women, the agonizing struggle between head and heart begins.
The screening will be followed by a drinks reception and then an opportunity for the audience to chat about Austen’s enduring presence with a panel of literature and media scholars from local universities: Dr Sarah
Gamble (Swansea), Dr Ruth McElroy (Glamorgan), Dr Anthony Mandal (Cardiff) and Dr Becky Munford (Cardiff).
The event is free but booking is essential. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your seats.
