Persuasion

coverI had a little Jane Austen movie marathon this weekend in my apartment. Nearly every one of her books has been made into a movie and I have every one of those movies. One after one I watched them, "Emma", "Sense and Sensability", "Mansfield Park"...but the best of all is "Persuasion". It's beautifully acted, the production qualities aren't as good as the others, but the story's great. For me, though, the whole movie is about That Scene, the one everyone who's seen the movie knows. The scene where she reads his letter. It makes me cry every time. It makes me cry in anticipation, the moment she sees the letter. Sigh. If you don't know what I'm talking about, rent it.
