    Synopsis


    Persuasion
    Sally Hawkins and Rupert Penry-Jones star in this adaptation of the Jane Austin classic about a lovelorn woman who receives a second chance for true happiness. Anne Elliot was just nineteen when she fell hopelessly in love with dashing naval officer Frederick Wentworth, so when her family attempted to convince her that she was making a terrible mistake the smitten young woman hastily broke off her engagement. That decision has haunted her ever since, and despite the fact that nearly a decade has passed not a day goes by that Anne doesn't long for Frederick's embrace. Now, eight years later, Frederick has returned a highly decorated, and extremely wealthy military man. As every eligible woman in Anne's district swoons over the handsome and successful naval officer, the crestfallen young woman still holds out hope that Frederick will somehow find it in his heart to look beyond her youthful indecision, and give her a second shot at true love. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      If you liked Pride and Prejudice then you will like Persuasion. This production make a great effort to bring the love story of a spinster who was persuaded by those around her to spurn the love of a man beneath her socially. Years later the man returns back from war a rich man in search of a wife. The casting is well done, and the actors did a great job bringing the story to life.

      I've seen several movies base on the novel and this is by far the best. Sally Hawkins is a very dutiful Anne. Rupert Penry-Jones is exactly how you'd want Capt. Wentworth to look and act. Ends wonderfully. Pop your popcorn and prepsre for a delightful movie experience!

      Although it may have been a bit short, and did not include some of my favorite moments in the novel, this adaptation of the novel captured the spirit of the novel and captured my favorite moments with an excellent cast.
