(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 26 – “I was about to get married once … and I was persuaded to let him go!”.
Persuasion is one of the most anticipated films of the summer on Netflix, where it will be available from 15 July, a full-length costume film based on the novel of the same name by Jane Austen with a surprising, ironic and non-conformist Dakota Johnson. Directed by Carrie Cracknell, acclaimed theater director, it is characterized by a witty and very modern approach. Johnson is the protagonist, alongside her are Cosmo Jarvis and Henry Goding. In the first trailer released by the streaming giant, the protagonist in the role of Anne Elliot makes it clear what she is made of from the very first images: “Don’t let anyone tell you how to live or who to love”.
Anne Elliot is a nonconformist young woman who lives in the English countryside with her father, Walter, younger sister Mary and older sister Elizabeth. Her family is proud of their origins and high-ranking position, and negatively judges all who belong to a lower class.
But nothing is as it seems: the financial meltdown weighs on their heads. Also for this reason, seven years before her, Anne was forced to leave her boyfriend, Captain Frederick, a naval officer. But the past is back and Frederick with it. The film has all the ingredients to become one of the most successful motion picture products of the summer on Netflix.
Between 1815 and 1816 Jane Austen wrote a novel entitled Persuasion. The British writer, author of iconic stories such as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Feeling or Emma never got to see this novel published because she died before her. It was her brother who made this story known to the public with a posthumous publication in 1818. (ANSA).
