Trailer for Scents and Sensibility Movie


They snuck this one in on us…we heard about it a while back, but quietly this film has been made and has a trailer, just in time for the bicentenary!

From the official Facebook page:

After their father is charged with swindling investors, Elinor (Ashley Williams) and Marianne Dashwood (Marla Sokoloff) must make their own way in life and love. They struggle to find jobs where being a Dashwood isn’t a strike against them. While Elinor finds work as a janitor at a spa, Marianne works at a cafe.

Their struggle to make ends meet–especially so they can help their mother pay for a critical medicine for their younger sister–is lightened by Marianne’s hobby of making scented lotions. One lotion heals aches and pains, which they sell to supplement their resources.

But others want the scented lotion formula, which could be worth a fortune. While Elinor and Marianne try to find love and acceptance, their trust is tested by those scheming to steal the formula. Can they come to a balance of relying on their hearts and sense without losing it all?

Sounds like a cute modern treatment of the story. No release date–on YouTube, someone apparently involved with the production wrote, “We’re hoping for a TV premiere´╗┐ later this year or early next year. Check out our facebook page for updates as we’ll let everyone know about the release info and have updates, photos, interviews, etc. as things progress. Thanks!”

Thanks to Laurie Viera Rigler, who posted a link to the trailer on Facebook!

New “Mollywood” version of S&S in the works for 2011


Alert Janeite Sylvia M. let us know that a new, modern-set version of S&S, called Scents and Sensibility, is in production for release in 2011. It looks like it is a product of the Mormon film industry, which also produced a modern-set version of P&P a few years back. Not much info available yet about the new movie, but well, hello Brandon.

(Somebody else told us about this–it has something to do with perfume–and we wish they would remind us about it comments! Sorry!)
