She's been heartbroken ever since Lady Russell, a trusted family friend, persuaded Anne to refuse the marriage proposal of naval officer Frederick Wentworth on account of his lack of fortune. Finding himself on the brink of financial ruin, Sir Walter Elliot rents out Kellynch Hall while he and the girls vacation at Bath. An ironic twist of fate brings the now wealthy Captain Wentworth and his relatives to the Elliot estate as seasonal tenants. So, Anne's beloved Frederick Wentworth enters her world once more. But there's no certainty love will bloom again.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay I bought this movie going by the reviews of the people on here. We were very disapointed in Persuasion. My daughter read the book in University and she liked it, so I thought it couldn't be too bad. It was very slow moving and feel the actors could have put more energy into their parts. The tears that I shed at the end weren't for the movie it was for all of the money spent on mediocre movies. I used to think BBC could do no wrong but have changed my mind on that. We will watch it again and might change our minds, we'll see.If only they would make the movies as they are described on the back of the cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful romance I just finished watching this film, and I have to say I was swept away by the enduring love between Anne & Capt. Wentworth. Amazing how after spending so many years apart and with it - two broken hearts,they still have such passion for each other. Love truly does endure. It was very well done and would recommend it to anyone who is a romantic at heart. Not only does Anne become full of life throughout the film, but Capt. Wentworth took my breath away. Handsome and sincere, you could see in his eyes the love he has for Anne. It was a beautiful adaptation of Jane Austen's story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kim I've seen this movie 5 times (twice in one weekend), and would gladly watch it again every month. The acting is phenomenal - understated yet powerful. The characters are so well fleshed out that it's not possible to have no feeling about any one of them. You either love them or loathe them. And the sets and costumes... gorgeous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Adaptation This is a wonderful adaptation of Jane Austen's Persuasion. Although it was created for the small screen, it is certainly worthy of a bigger one. The script was beautifully written and stays very true to the original novel.
