Persuasion movie Customer Reviews
||Better than other version|
I just fell in love with the character that Rupert Penry-Jones plays as Captain Wentworth when I saw this, and then I fell in love with the film itself. Its wonderful!

||Almost as Good as the 1995 BBC Production|
In fact, the male lead here is better - but Amanda Root gave a more subtle performance, in the 1995 version. Both versions are excellent, but the actors with the secondary parts in this newer version are superb - I would give it 4.5 starts, if I could.

||Fell way short of expectations|
I watched the movie right after I read the book. It really disappointed in being true to the story and to the complexity of the characters. I thought the scenes were all really disjointed as well, with very little character development. I don't think it's worth watching -- it did an injustice to Austen's story. I recommend that viewers should read the book before seeing any movie adaptation to appreciate it fully.
