      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Despite Dakota Johnson's best efforts, the chaotically anachronistic Persuasion fails to convince as a worthwhile Austen adaptation.

      Audience Consensus

      Whether you're annoyed or entertained by its modern touches, Persuasion definitely isn't your grandmother's Austen adaptation.

      Lynn Y Really enjoyed this take on Austen, though I agree with Tina Kakadelis, it could have gone further, however it took a leaf out of Bridgerton's book and livened things up a bit! It was colourful and stylish, and Dakota Johmson was excellent. I read Persuasion in first year uni English Lit, freezing in a cold flat in a small room I shared with wet washing on a portable radiator. Since then, I've had daughters, visited Bath often with them, and Dorset on holidays, having a day out at Lyme Regis too! 40 years since I read Persuasion! I liked it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Faith F Love it! Especially the two leads. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Kirly B I heard this movie was terrible, but I love it. Dakota's performance is charming and heartbreaking at the same time. There is mad chemistry between the leads. I keep watching this movie. After my fourth viewing I felt compelled to come here and share my experience. I tried watching one of the older adaptations and felt like it was dour and boring. Don't believe the hype! This film is wonderful. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Daniel B Persuasión es visualmente hermosa, un diseño de producción impecable envuelto en una historia simple pero concisa, tal vez más circular en su resolución de lo que la trama necesitaba, pero una historia entrañable que adapta a la gran novela homónima. Me pareció muy interesante el cómo la película plantea el triángulo amoroso únicamente desde la perspectiva de Anne, haciendo que el desarrollo de la otra relación entre Frederick y Louisa se sienta externo a la trama que se centra únicamente en el POV de Anne, planteando un conflicto interno en Annie, ya que aprecia a ambos de formas diferentes, creando un "muro" entre Anne y Frederick que funciona cómo el incidente incitador que la película necesita para ser cautivadora, el desarrollo personaje de Anne, aunque es muy sobre explicativo dada la naturaleza de la narrativa, es interesante, el cómo la vida de ella es afectada gracias a terceros que priorizaron sus propios pensamientos de sí mismos cómo de lo que se supondría que es mejor para ella, guardando un resentimiento de lo que pudo ser su vida si hubiera antepuesto sus deseos propios, hasta que gracias al destino la vuelve a poner ante el amor de su vida por eventos completamente externos a ambos, siendo de cierta manera el destino el que les concede esta segunda oportunidad. Persuasión está lejos de tener una historia diferencia o única, reiteradamente cae en estereotipos de películas románticas, pero logra ser muy entretenida, paisajes hermosos, personajes histriónicos que adornan la película y logran ser empáticos con el espectador en una historia de amor, aunque predecible, encantadora. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Ginni B As a period Rom-com it's OK-ish, as a version of Jane Austen's Persuasion it's awful. Anne, arch, bitchy, flirty and a lush who constantly talks to the camera and enjoys double-entendres, is nothing like Austen's heroine. The film takes the basic framework of the book, but that's all. Far better to have made it a modern similar film like Clueless/Emma than bastardise Persuasion in this way. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Sirena M The movie was cute, but was more light than previous adaptations. It was definitely the Persuasion of this era.

      Mark Kermode Kermode and Mayo's Take (YouTube) If you take it completely on its own terms and don't see it as an Austen adaptation, there's stuff in it that is fun. Feb 6, 2024 Full Review Tom Shone Times (UK) There’s nothing wrong with updating Austen, but this isn’t so much updating the book as performing a gut renovation. Rated: 1/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Rachel Cunliffe New Statesman A joyful, tongue in cheek and thoroughly self-aware parody. Jul 29, 2022 Full Review Nadine Whitney Mr. Movie's Film Blog Don’t waste your precious time on a film that so profoundly misunderstands the work that it is based on that it makes one wonder if anyone involved in the production actually read the novel. Rated: 1.5/5 Sep 17, 2023 Full Review Sarah Vincent Cambridge Day The anachronistic armchair psychology about narcissism and self-care could work if the proceedings were not so dull and angst-filled. Rated: 2/4 Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Tina Kakadelis Film Obsessive Persuasion (2022) does not entirely work because it’s afraid to fully commit to the screwball comedy stylings the film briefly touches upon.
