Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing, but unsuitable, John Willougby, she ignores her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Meanwhile, Elinor always sensitive to social convention, is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her.
