About a week ago my mom and I watched the BBC version of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. If you haven’t seen this version, I highly recommend it! I think that the British psyche understands Jane Austen’s characters much more deeply and genuinely than the American actor’s psyche (I think there should be a law making it illegal for anyone but British actors from portraying Jane Austen characters! LOL! Just kidding, sort of! If you’ve seen Becoming Jane, you know what I mean! What a disappointment that was!) . I do not pretend to be a Jane Austen expert or even a hard core Jane Austen fan;but this movie had my mom and I on the edge of our seats! And boy were we ever swooning over Mr Wentworth! Add it to you Netflix queue!
