    Persuasion is the story of love lost - which for those of us who have experienced it - can be a heart-wrenching thing to go through. Austen's heroine, Anne Elliot, thinks she has missed the chance of a lifetime, when 8 years previously, she turned down the opportunity of marrying a young, naval officer, after listening to family and friends rather than her own heart. When Captain Frederick Wentworth, now wealthy, is re-introduced to her, she is certain it is too late - or is it?
    This is one of the best adaptations of Persuasion that I have ever seen. Whilst certain parts of it are not in keeping with the book and may lack accuracy (for the Austen perfectionists out there), it is an excellent attempt at capturing the essence of the story.
    Both leads, Sally Hawkins and Rupert Penry-Jones, give superb performances as Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth, with Penry-Jones, being almost as smouldering as Colin Firth was as Darcy.
    I would highly recommend this adaptation to anyone who loves Austen or simply wants a very romantic night in!
