If you watched the first installment last night, Persuasion, what did you think? Here is my brief summary.
What happened to Gillian Anderson in the intro? She looked stiff and ghoulish. What was wrong with her mouth?
I didn’t like the frantic and modern camera work on the movie. I can’t stand all the random action and needing to constantly have the camera moving.
Not too thrilled with the music.
I didn’t care for most of the casting except you have to like that Captain Wentworth. I could watch him for much longer than ninety minutes!
I also strongly dislike the “look into the camera thing.” I think it really takes away from the authenticity of the piece.
Overall, I’d sit through it again for free if I was bored, but there is no way I would spend $20 for a copy. I definitely liked it better than the recent Pride and Prejudice. If you want to read my review of that mess, you can go here.
So what did you think? I hope you’ll leave a comment!
