Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ Is Getting A Reboot




Jane Austen’s final complete novel Persuasion is being adapted into a movie yet again. HBO Original Succession star Sarah Snook is set to play the protagonist Anne Elliot, who left a young Captain Wentworth jilted after an engagement, and meets him again after eight years. Permission to freak out? While this is all the news Searchlight Pictures has released so far, let’s take a look into what Persuasion is about and some of the past adaptations!

Persuasion: Plot

Persuasion is a beloved English author Jane Austen’s final novel. It is one of her most poignant works, flowing with the breeze of romanticism while still retaining her witty and spirited dialogues and criticisms of culture. The book (and film adaptations) focus on protagonist Anne Elliot’s relationship with Captain Wentworth.

Anne Elliot is the daughter of Sir Walter Elliot. Sir Walter is forced into bankruptcy after living in a rather luxurious style. His estate, Kellynch Hall, is left in the hands of Admiral Croft and his wife Sophia. Turns out, Sophia Croft is the sister of Captain Wentworth. He is the man who proposed to Anne Elliot eight years ago.

Anne and Captain Wentworth were much in love eight years ago, while still in their blooming years. However, due to the interference of her father and her dear friend Lady Russell, Anne was forced to break her engagement. Now, Anne must encounter Captain Wentworth again, a man who still harbors resentment against her.

Traveling along with the English Oceanside with her sister Mary, her husband Charles Musgrove, and his two sisters, Anne and Captain Wentworth rediscover their passion and love for each other.

Persuasion: Cast

Sally Hawkins plays Anne Elliot and Rupert Penry-Jones Captain Frederick Wentworth in the 2007 adaptation. Anthony Head plays Sir Walter Elliot while Julia Davis plays Elizabeth Elliot. Alice Krige plays Lady Russell and Amanda Hale plays Mary Musgrove, Anne’s younger sister.

We definitely cannot wait for the latest version of Persuasion to come out! After the success of Emma early this year, it would certainly be a delight. Oh, after all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen adaptations, no matter how far fetched, are determined to be successes.
