This task is complicated when they are forced out of their estate and take up residence in a country home belonging to a family friend. While dealing with the legal aspects of her father’s death Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars (Bosco Hogan) who is engaged to Lucy Steele (Julia Chambers), while the flirtatious Marianne pursues John Willoughby (Peter Woodward), a cad and scoundrel, while ignoring the affectionate attentions of Colonel Brandon (Robert Swann).
