This review is from: Persuasion : Complete BBC Adaptation  [DVD] (DVD)
Pretty much as true to the book as you could wish for; I never get tired of watching this DVD. It's so restrained and understated in the best possible way; no overdramatics and OTT camera work. Amanda Root is wonderful; just plain enough in the beginning but really blooms throughout the story. Corin Redgrave is wonderful as Sir Walter; exactly silly and vain enough and I absolutely adore Ciaran Hinds as Captain Wentworth and the tension between Hinds and Root is fabulous. Truly, as Austen as Austen could be - everything about this production is impeccable.
