Having recently read Persuasion, I was excited about watching the BBC version of Persuasion. However, I was cruelly disappointed at this rendition of Jane Austen's timeless classic. Anne Elliot bore me to tears. She had very few lines, was plainly dressed, and looked ten years older than she was in the book. The movie hardly held my interest. I recommend that you not watse your time on this movie. read the book instead. It will give you greater pleasure.
I am completely in love with this film. It is clever and funny, but has moments that break my heart for Anne. I think that if you love Austen, you should definitely give Persuasion a try. It's incredible and, I think, so easy to fall in love with. Anne Elliot is no Elizabeth Bennet, but I think that I prefer her the more for it. Maybe I just love the idea of two people reunited and the possibility of love rekindling.
The story is timeless and classic. However, the film's sound quality is very poor. There is a great deal of background noise that interferes with the ability to hear dialogue in many parts of the movie.
