Another point I want to make is that, apart from the ending scenes of the film, I actually rather like Kate Winslet's performance as Marianne. Overall, I find Winslet's Marianne to be one of the more sympathetic and less irritating portrayals (although Charity Wakefield's Marianne is even better, IMO). She is also VERY energetic and spirited throughout most of S&S2, and this is why I am so bothered by how listless and spiritless she seems at the end. She is such an interesting and appealing character that I think it's a shame that Winslet was hamstrung by the editing of the final scenes of the film, and, to a lesser degree, certain aspects of the screenplay.
