5.0 out of 5 stars wont you stay...this is a very beautiful love song, 23 May 2012
This review is from: Persuasion (Repackaged) [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
At last an adaptation of Austen that has not been turned into a chickflic. Persuasion is the most thoughtful of the novels, Austen at her most skilful and profound, so it is delightful that it has been adapted with similar confidence and subtlety. Our heroine is not a starlet but a young woman drained by disappointment and in this adaptation she really does gain radiance as her hope is rekindled.

The portrayal of her father must get the prize for best dimwit aristocrat ever, a real underplayed gem of a performance. In fact all the characters are charmingly themselves, adorable Charles, the daffy sisters, their loving bemused parents such an amiable contrast to Anne's own family. Social levels reflected in costume and language and values, from the impoverished navy family through the county up to the Vicountess (she is a Vi-count-ess!)are spot on. Lovely. Enjoy.
