Persuasion #FilmReview #BriFri — 5 Comments

  1. I read the less than glowing Persuasion reviews but I actually enjoyed it. I thought they did a good job and a lot of the characters seemed very credible. I think a film is very different to reading a book. I did like the book and it was mostly about thinking rather than dialogue. I thought this production translated that.

  2. Great review from you and I like Anne’s comment above. Have not seen this version and my husband is also likely to fall asleep during movies like this so, great to hear your husband enjoyed this one!

    I brought you a book which is not awt in the British Isles but authored by a British writer.

  3. I just read a favourable review in one of our Australian newspapers. They said “ Persuasion is a universal story: getting back with your ex after he got a promotion. Johnson’s Anne is the 19th-century cool girl, charming kids, men and dour-faced dowagers alike. She could be an Instagram influencer with her colourful wallpaper and bunny cuddling, talking us through her dysfunctional family and broken heart, while she wants nothing more than to read a book and chug a bottle of wine #relatable. “Don’t let anyone tell you how to live, or who to love,” she says, a quote that could almost come straight from Meghan Markle’s new podcast. And the painfully romantic line from Frederick’s letter, “you pierce my soul” still makes us swoon like the bodacious bodice-wearing babes of Austen’s era. While there’s zero chance The Da Vinci Code is getting remade in 2203 with a quirky modern twist, Netflix’s Persuasion proves the timelessness of Austen.” Hear hear 😉
