For Your Consideration...

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)

SS Tiger NewDirector Ang Lee called this visually-artistic film “Sense and Sensibility with martial arts.” There are echoes of Jane Austen’s novel in the parallel stories of an older heroine, who lets her head lead her heart, and a younger heroine whose sensibility overcomes her sense, but one suspects the Miss Dashwoods could not wield swords with quite that degree of skill.
