It's the story of old maid (Wait, what? She's only 27!) Anne Elliot and the man that got away, Captain Wentworth.
- Will they meet again?
- Will he still love her?
- Will they ever have a happy ending?
When I initially watched this I had not yet seen the actress who played Anne Elliot; Sally Hawkins, in her Golden Globe-winning role as Poppy in Happy-Go-Lucky. Now, I am amazed, because those two roles could not be more different!
So first watch Persuasion and then if you get the chance, watch Sally again in Happy-Go-Lucky. Just let me know if she doesn't blow you away.
