365 Movies: Persuasion Review

Persuasion stars Sally Hawkes and Rupert Penry Jones in 2007 adaptation of Jane Austen's novel of the same name. The film is about 27 year old Anne Elliot, who meets her lost love again after years of being forced apart. Anne was forced to leave a man she truly loved, because her family didn't like him. When the two reunite, Anne feels he despises her and the two seem more apart than ever before. I truly, love Jane Austen and this is just another fine example of her work. It's a simple, sweet, and endearing film, that is filled with love and second chances. I really thought that Sally and Rupert made a swell couple together and I greatly hope to see more movies of their's. A fine film with a marvelous set of actors.

AHHHH! I love this movie so much. It's not even FUNNY! I had a VHS taped off of PBS when it first aired and I think I watched it about 50times the first week! Haha!

I have the DVD of it now!

It's just so I wanna watch it...

I love Jane Austen! This movie is so beautiful and romantic! I think my favorite, though, would have to be "Pride and Prejudice" or "Mansfield Park." Great review!
