So many Jane Austen novels were put into film, because she had a way of spinning a story propelling a person into the plot line. Persuasion is not different; a young lady falls in love with a man who is not in the same social standing. During a time when social class was the most important thing, and defined who you were as a person. Persuasion was Jane Austen's last novel completed in August 1816. Ann Elliot becomes an unmarried spinster during a time when that carried a negative connotation, placing her in a position as an unattached woman. She had to live with her sister and brother-in-law. When her true love returns from war, he is now in a position of wealth and prestige. Rejecting Ann because she turned him down when he had nothing the plot centers around; both Ann Elliot and Frederick Wentworth rediscovering love and healing from old wounds. The film Persuasion does not disappoint those who are true Jane Austen fans.
