IMHO, the S&S2 Lucy is very different than that of the Lucy in the book, especially regarding her decision to marry Robert Ferrars. In the book, I found almost no hint of any attraction between Lucy and Robert, but in the movie, there was foreshadowing almost from the first moment of their acquaintance. At the ball where the Dashwoods and Lucy first meet Robert, there is an obvious attraction. I think the movie Lucy is much less calculating than Lucy appears in the novel. In the book, Lucy's sudden change of heart from one brother to another seems more suspicious than it does in the movie.
