Show Synopsis

Adapted from what is arguably Jane Austen's most mature and subtlest novel, Persuasion is somewhat more nuanced and restrained than the more frequently adapted Emma and Pride and Prejudice. The protagonist, Anne (Amanda Root), is, by the conventions of society, considered an old maid when she remains unmarried at 27.

Excellent Version of Persuasion

I loved this version of Persuasion, even though it wasn't completely true to the original Jane Austen novel. It has a spirit that the 2007 version and the BBC version lacked. I recommend it to every and any Jane Austen fan or those who like a love story filled with sophisticated dialogue, complex motives, beautiful period dress and locations, and wonderful acting.

Quietly seething

What's not to like? Pretty girls, handsome men, odious relatives, love gone wrong that will soon be righted; you will find all and more in this movie.

Premise: Young woman persuaded to turn down the proposal of her true love because of his apparent lack of prospects finds herself an "old maid" several years later. But, hark! he reappears on the scene, wealthy and more handsome than ever. Does he still love her as she does him? Well, of course he does and the lovers are reunited after a few twists and turns and schemes.

Acted well, beautiful scenery, beautiful clothing. Well done!
