Heartwarming: Sense and Sensibility

The 1995 film

  • Toward the end of the movie, when Edward comes calling to the Dashwood ladies. This is after the women had heard that Elinor's rival for Edward's affection - Lucy - had gotten married. During the awkward exchanges, Edward reveals that Lucy had in fact married Edward's younger brother. Elinor's reaction upon hearing that is pure CMoF, but this falls under Heartwarming because of the joyous grin on Elinor's face, and from what Margaret reports spying from her treehouse:
    Margaret: He's kneeling down!
    Edward: Elinor. Elinor, I met Lucy when I was very young. Had I an active profession, I should never have felt such an idle and foolish inclination. My behavior at Norland was very wrong, but I convinced myself that you felt only friendship for me, and that it was my heart alone that I was risking. I have come here with no expectations, only to profess, now that I am at liberty to do so, that my heart is, and always will be... yours.
  • After Colonel Brandon rescues Marianne, who has fallen ill pining for Willoughby in the rain and brings her to the Dashwood home, the following exchange reveals the depth of his feelings for Marianne:
    Brandon: What can I do?
    Elinor: Colonel, you have done so much already...
    Brandon: Give me an occupation, Miss Dashwood, or I shall run mad.
