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.

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!

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.

After already having read the book and having seen both the 1971 and the 1995 film adaptations, I was ready for this version to disappoint, expecially seeing how many negative critiques there are about it. I was pleasantly surprised, however, when I first watched this version. I was acutally thrilled. Every scene with Anne and Wentworth has so much tension, the director never failed to put in meaning connections between the two every chance he got. Of course a film of this length can't be %100 faithful to the novel, so I certainly have to forgive the parts that are left out. I actually found the journal writing very effective, and it helped fill in the blanks.

I have found a new favorite movie, and I am certain that I will be watching this movie over and over again.

Although this version is probably the farthest stretch from the book (compared to the 1995 and the 1971 versions), I would say it is probably the one that is the most in keeping with the spirit of the book. Althoug many characters and scenes have been given the axe, nothing of importance is missing. Both lead actors have embraced their roles with abandon, and thus, are very convincing. You feel their dilemmas very keenly. And one might even have the surprise of an endorphin rush... (I am not saying where: it's yours to discover). Ah! One cannot say enough about the pleasures of a well-crafted drama!

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.

I very much liked this version of Jane Austen's Persuasion, I found the characters very believable, and I love that you get a bit more emotions from Anne, especially when she is writing her letters. The only thing I really don't like about this film is the kissing scene it takes them so long to kiss. However, I have to say if you're a fan of the 1995 version as I am I equally like both versions, and think they both have something that the other doesn't.
