Persuasion 2022 Movie Review Trailer Online

Director: Carrie Cracknell
Writers: Jane Austen, Ron Bass, Alice Victoria Winslow
Stars: Dakota Johnson, Henry Golding, Richard E. Grant

Persuasion 2022, directed by Roger Michell, is a beautifully produced film adaptation of a classic Jane Austen novel. Amanda Root plays the good, generous and intelligent Anne Elliot, a serious woman who has a second chance to get the man of her dreams. The first time, an experienced friend of hers (Susan Fleetwood) dissuaded her from marrying Wentworth (Ciaran Hinds), who is now very wealthy.

Nick Dean’s sophisticated script does a wonderful job of conveying the class warfare of the time, embodied here in the snobbish attitudes of Anne’s sister and father. Persuasion is a love story that unfolds slowly, proving that good things cannot be rushed.

Adapting Austen’s story to the screen requires a very sensitive writer and director. This new ITV/Masterpiece PBS production of Persuasion is the first installment in The Complete Jane Austen series this year on PBS, which will also include new productions of three other new adaptations of her main novels, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Sense and Sensibility. . and a Miss Austen Regrets biopic. There will also be an encore presentation of Emma (1996) and Pride and Prejudice (1995) to complete the lineup. This new Persuasion has a promising ensemble of accomplished British actors and crew to support Austen’s narrative. Being both a tragedy and a comedy, you really never know how it’s going to play out.

There have been other film adaptations of Austen’s classic love story, notably Persuasion (1995), a feature film starring Amanda Root as Anne Elliot and Ciarán Hinds as Captain Frederick Wentworth. Written by Nick Dear and directed by Roger Mitchell, it was produced by the BBC and was intended to be broadcast on television, but was later released as a theatrical film. It won awards and acclaim from the Jane Austen community for its smooth love story expertly told. I can still watch it again in the blink of an eye and be in awe of the fabulous acting, costumes, setting, and sensibility of Austen’s original novel.
