Emma Thompson Signed Sense and Sensibility 8x10

"What do you know of my heart? What do you know of anything but your own suffering?"

 

This beautiful 8x10 picture of Emma Thompson as Elinor Dashwood in the critically acclaimed Sense and Sensibility has been signed by the lady herself. The film was hugely successful on both sides of the Atlantic - being nominated for 7 Oscars - with Emma's statue for best screenplay being the sole success. It did however win the BAFTA for best film, whilst Emma and Kate Winslet also picked up BAFTA gongs for their acting.

 

When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility.

Extraordinarily gifted and appealing actress who catapulted to stardom with her brilliant, Oscar-winning performance as Margaret Schlegel in the Merchant-Ivory adaptation of Howards End (1992). Thompson began acting at Cambridge University with the comedy troupe Footlights, and after experience on television with fellow troupe members Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, she starred in her first stage musical, "Me and My Girl," opposite Robert Lindsay. She won a British Academy Award for her work on the BBC series "Tutti Frutti" and "Fortunes of War" and became friends with her "Fortunes" costar, Kenneth Branagh, who cast her as Katherine of France in his Oscar-winning adaptation of Shakespeare's Henry V (1989). Branagh and Thompson were married after the film's release. 

 

She reteamed with her Howards End costar Anthony Hopkins in the Merchant-Ivory film The Remains of the Day (1993), and played a lawyer defending an accused IRA terrorist in In the Name of the Father (1993), earning Oscar nominations for both performances. She made an unbilled cameo as Gerard Depardieu's girlfriend in My Father the Hero and teamed with her least likely costar, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Junior (both 1994) before taking the title role in Carrington. More recent films have included Primary Colours, Love Actually and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in which she played the 'medium' Professor Trelawney brilliantly!
