5.0 out of 5 stars A Favorite Nov. 27 2012
By Jenn
It's interesting to see other people's reviews. It really shows how different everyone's tastes are. This is one of my favorite classics to watch and one of the few I watch over and over. The characters really set off the mood and feeling of the story. I thought the actors were great and personally I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Jane Austen film adaptations! March 9 2013
By K
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favourite Jane Austen novels and I absolutely love this BBC adaptation! It is perfect for a relatively "quick" dose of Austen and is a great film to start soon-to-be Jane Austen fans off on. Even my husband enjoyed this one! I would for recommend this for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Wonderful Jan. 1 2008
This is any Jane Austen viewers delight, to watch an adaptation that is perfect. Anne's character connects to the audience in a profound way, especially the scenes when she is writing her letters - the monologue and eye contact with the camera - is as though she was explaining her story to you personally. That made this even more wonderful to watch. The costumes and scenery were in keeping with the times and the script was edited as best for viewing. I would have loved to enjoy more of this adaptation but I know that all good things must come to an end.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm Persuaded to say it's good but not great Feb. 27 2011
I love Rupert Penry-Jones, a fine actor and the rest of the cast was excellent, it's the screenplay that let this version down. Having enjoyed the 1995 version with Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds very much, this version just fell short, skimming over the details without the depth to pull the veiwer into the story. For the acting I found it enjoyable, but I'd much rather watch the 1995 version if I'm in the mood for a little Persuasion.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good shot that has been been bested. April 19 2008
Despite the more than slightly lackluster camera work this is overall an enjoyable incarnation. The cast and crew do a fair justice to the story, the intensity of long sought romance is well executed, and the uncertainty of Wentworth’s affections is duly felt, little else however seems to matter.

The extended time seems to have been ill managed, as the frustrated ghost of an old romance dominates the movie’s psychology with long silences and much scenery. To be fair it does increase the viewer’s pleasure at the inevitable happy outcome. Yet the story seems less lively than its 1995 predecessor. Background characters like the unsurpassable Miss Musgroves, and the involvement with Mrs. Clay and the family’s financial trouble appear almost as grudging afterthoughts. The Musgrove family, particularly sister Mary is disappointing when compared with the wonderful satire of the 1995 version.

Perhaps a close comparison is unfair; this is a very enjoyable and admirably cast production that adheres sufficiently and with engrossing historical detail to one of the best and most mature of the Austin canon.

Overall: a strong effort despite a slightly mouseish, somewhat too young and consistently thunderstruck female lead. Although I stick by the 95 rendition this version is far from unwatchable and shouldn’t be overlooked by the true Austin-aficionado.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnifique Jan. 17 2008
Wow. Il s'agit là de la meilleure adaptation d'un roman de Jane Austen par la BBC en 2007 après le très décevant Mansfield Park et le ordinaire Northanger Abbey. Cette version de l'histoire de Ann Elliot est sublime du début à la fin. On ressent sa douleur, son angoisse, ses doutes. Je n'ai pas vu la version de 1995, et je ne crois pas que je veuille m'y risquer. J'ai vu quelques scènes, et cela ne m'a pas convaincue. Peut-être à cause des acteurs qui ont l'air d'avoir 40 ans. Non, j'aime mieux conserver les belles images de cette adaptation avec Sally Hawkins dans le rôle titre, et Rupert Penry-Jones dans celui du séduisant Capitaine Wentworth

This is not a great version of Austen's final novel (and my favourite). The ending is corny and bears no resemblance to the book. Read more
