Persuasion (2007)

At the age of nineteen, Anne Elliot fell deeply in love with handsome young naval officer Frederick Wentworth. But with neither fortune nor rank to recommend him, Anne's family were against the match and persuaded her to break off the engagement. Now twenty-seven, Anne has lived to regret her decision. She has never stopped loving Wentworth, and when he returns from sea having made his fortune and reputation, she can only watch as every eligible young woman in the district falls at his feet. Has he forgotten the girl he left behind? And can he forgive her for listening to her family instead of her heart?


Rupert Penry-Jones makes a delightful Captain Wentworth and Sally Hawkins is great as Anne Elliott. The dragged out kiss at the end makes me want to throw something at the screen so that they would just get on with it, but I love the ending where they dance and kiss outside their house. I love a happy ending!  Enjoy Persuasion! :) xx


  1. This was a good version. Have you seen the 1995 version? That's totally brilliant in my opinion! :) xx

    1. No, I haven't seen the 1995 version because I am not a fan of Ciarán Hinds. :) xx
