|BBC 1995 production of Persuasion|
One of the best lines ever in a novel or film, "You pierce my soul."
If you are a Jane Austen fan, BBC production fan, Period Drama fan or in fact just a good film fan, do yourself a favour & get a copy of the BBC's 1995 production of Persuasion starring Amanda Root as Anne Elliot & Ciaran Hinds as Captain Frederick Wentworth. In my opinion it is the best adaptation of a Jane Austen work by far as it does not "pretty" up the actors nor the costumes. It is a grounded & more realistic portrayal of the people and times of Jane Austen. One of my all time favourite films.
"You pierce my soul." I swoon!
