Worth a try?

I think so. IThis m ovie feels like a short story version of Persuasion. But a decent one nonetheless. I like Sally Hawkins, I think she acts with good feeling.


I have enjoyed both the leads in other performances, so I was excited to learn of this new production of the Austen gem, Persuasion. Sadly, there is no chemistry between the leads; I didn't find myself caring whether they came together. If you're an Austen fan and want a dose of Persuasion, choose the Root/Hinds production. The leads in that film were amazing and I give big points to Sophie Thompson as the hypochondriacal Elliot sister. THAT version is worth watching. Reserve it now.
