best interpretion of Persuasion on film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Persuasion (Repackaged) [DVD]  (DVD)
I love this DVD. The film is close to the book and very realistic to the period. I particularly like the use of natural light, even during the evenings when only candles were available. The awkwardness of various social settings is Jane Austen's real gift and this is beautifully acted. We can clearly sense the main characters' thoughts and motivations through the machinations of the plot. Highly recommended for a sensitive, intelligent take on Jane Austen's most mature novel.
