Sense and Sensibility

Jane Austen, Olga Šubrtová, Martina Schlegelová
A romantic story from “good old England”

The beautiful and sensible Elinor, and even more beautiful and wild Marianne, two sisters who grew up in luxury in a castle, face a harsh fate after their father’s death. According to ancient laws, their half-brother inherits the property and they (and their mother and their underage sister) must move to a simple village house. Their future is extremely uncertain – who will want to marry the girls without a dowry? Moreover, when both stubbornly long to marry for love?
But gentlemen have already appeared on the scene – the shy and witty Edward, the brave Colonel Brandon, the charming Willoughby and the rich Lord Quido... The magical colour of Jane Austen’s novels comes to life in the castle gardens of Český Krumlov, taking us back two centuries, to the times when stories of great romantic love still existed …
