Why Persuasion 2022 has become my favourite version
1. Cosmo Jarvis
Definitely well cast as Wentworth. A bit of a dish!
Beautifully filmed. Very lush and lovely.
The portrayal of the characters is much more human and real than some versions. Perhaps people in Jane Austen's time were more staid. But Dakota Johnson was more relatable.
Despite creating a very different version, the storyline was still faithful to the book.
The film kept my interest. A big point in its favour. I would definitely watch it again.
I studied Persuasion at school. It sparked my love of Jane Austen's books. I've read Persuasion many times. I wonder how it will read now in a very different light!
