    I could not watch all of this miserable movie. It was very dreary and the leading man—not appealing AT ALL! Scruffy, oily, little beady eyes–paired with beautiful Dakota Johnson? And she seemed too modern for this genre. Older versions are true to the book and more enjoyable.

    Absolutely phenomenal production. Dakota is incredible. Yes, the entire screen play is "off" previously set rules. And that's what makes it witty, fresh and adorable. Absolutely incredible. It's time to set new horizons and do the unthinkable. It's time to stop being afraid and conform to the familiar skeleton of film making. People like familiarity. People are afraid of being put in the new space. Because they feel different. I appreciate different. I love different. Different opens up new horizons, new possibility. WELL DONE TEAM. Hallelujah!!!

    What most of you don't seem to understand is that movies aren't made exclusively for readers and to satisfy their desperate need to see what they read in the book inside the movie. True, the film doesn't stick to the book, but that's the goal. Those who have never read the novel may have found the film wonderful and empowering, and precisely because they have not read the original book they cannot compare a Jane Austen novel with a 2022 movie. Many times the films are not made to imitate the book, on the contrary, they are made to give another vision of the story, to modify it and make it even more modern so that it can thrill anyone. Austen is not for everyone, and I find it fantastic that this story can also be savored by those who have different tastes that do not reflect Austen's style. No one is taking anything away from anyone, the original book is there and it doesn't move, leave the film and whoever likes it in peace.
    If you don't like the movie I can only tell you to read the book and stop insulting what has been a long and exhausting job done by directors, actors etc … Okay, you don't like it because it doesn't respect the book. I'm sorry , but it is enough to belittle the work of others because it does not meet your expectations. Bye.

    Hello, Sense and Sensibility? I think Maryanne escaped and is trying to take the lead role in Persuasion…please tell her that we liked her in her book, but please return our Anne to us back the way she was. Thank you.

    tho i haven't read the book by itself, but reading ur comments is enough :D. I remember my roommate saying that its normal to see a total different movie inspired with a book, be it with the plot or the characters. he said that it would a shame to copy everything, losing the sense of creativity with the scriptwriter, the director or anyone involve in producing such a movie. just saying, he's kinda right.

    I get that they wanted diversity in the movie and all but this is supposed to be in a certain era where unfortunately equal rights is but a myth. The casting was not quite right including of Anne's herself.

    I read the book recently and wanted to watch the movie. After 20min I was so disapointed and searched for another version. Thankfully 2007 was awesome. I dont like when they try to add some of today values in such classic movies. Whats next, Anne will become Antonio???

    Good job dear Netflix. You are insulting the work of a great women. Me as a men, love Austen work. What, a quiet women can be strong? That's your judgement? Wow. Not only not have respect for the hystorical accuracy, you don't have respect for the original material. Go f*ck yourself, Netflix.

    For those who are unsatisfied with this version of Persuasion, please check out the 2007 movie directed by Adrian Shergold and screenplay written by Simon Burke. Sally Hawkins stars as the protagonist Anne Elliot, while Rupert Penry-Jones plays Captain Frederick Wentworth. Both are phenomenal in this movie. Both actors played the characters perfectly. ❤️
