Persuasion, the Movie

Over the weekend I watched the 1995 version of Persuasion. I liked it well enough but i don't think it is going to be one i'll be buying. It definitely is a much slower sort of movie; each part of the story comes to view in its' own time. Because Persuasion doesn't have the zippy dialogue of Pride and Prejudice, our heroine Anne has to show her emotions with how she looks and acts. I liked the theme of love recovered after a long separation and i liked the side characters, especially the Admiral Croft and his wife. overall, i'd give this one a 5.
