In the latest episode of the Film Stories with Simon Brew podcast, Simon looks at a pair of 90s movies that each faced its own battle.

The late Penny Marshall’s A League Of Their Own changed director, and found itself looking for a new lead at the last minute.

In the case of Sense & Sensibility, it took a decade to bring the Emma Thompson-headlined and adapted version of the film to the screen. And there were significant early cultural challenges.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
