The most beloved adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel is this offering by director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain) and an all-star cast that includes Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Tom Wilkinson, and Kate Winslet. Thompson and Winslet take the leads as two sisters who are left to fend for themselves when their father dies and leaves much of the estate to a son from a previous marriage. At the time, this was the first Austen adaptation in over 50 years, and was so successful in updating the great author’s work for modern audiences that it led to a rush of 1990s adaptations including Mansfield Park, Emma, and Clueless.

Director Joss Whedon had about 12 days to kill while filming Marvel’s The Avengers, so he shot a modern-day take of the Shakespeare comedy, using a cast of his regular actors. This cult favorite manages to thrill the diverse fanbases of both Whedon and Shakespeare, showcasing the wit and snappy delivery of dialogue that makes Whedon and his regular actors so beloved, while also shining new light on the sexual tension and romantic play of the Bard’s words.
Helena Bonham Carter, Nigel Hawthorne, Ben Kingsley, Steven Mackintosh, and Imogen Stubbs star in this adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s most-loved comedies, a farce of gender confusion about a shipwrecked woman who disguises herself as her brother to be near a Count she adores only to find the Countess falling for her.
Laurence Olivier directed, produced, and stars in this adaptation of Shakespeare’s epic drama. He plays the King of the title, who steals the crown from his brother and enjoys a brief and ruthless rule. Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor, this is one of the most sumptuous of all the Bard’s cinematic adaptations.
This fall, 16 of the most revered British films of all time are coming to Portland Museum of Art.
