Persuasion (1995 version) 

How did I end up watching this movie?

I decided to join the Everything Austen challenge for which I committed to watching six Austen themed movies.  This was my third selection.

Which character did I like best in the movie?

Wentworth because I was drawn to his silent intensity.  Although, I wanted him to make a move sooner.

What was my favorite quote from the movie?

The exact quote is escaping me, but I really loved Ann's description of what makes good company. She talks of clever people who engage in interesting conversation.

What will stick with me from the movie?

It is possible for someone who appears plain to others to find love with an amazing person.

If I could change one thing about the movie, what would it be?

I wanted to have more of the background of the relationship between the characters which was more developed in the book.

Who would enjoy this movie?

Jane Austen fans.

Which screen is this movie best viewed on?

Either one.

Other comments?

During the last couple scenes, the heat between Ann and Frederick was powerful.  When they touched hands, I felt so excited.
