Everyone started revising the story, and many started to search more on the story and wanted to get as close as possible to the inside story.

What Is Persuasion About?
The story of the movie directed by Carrie Cracknell is based on a woman named Anne Elliot who is the protagonist of the story and narrator of the story.

The pair reconnects after seven years of rejection and separation when Elliots lease out their home to Wentworth’s sister and her husband as they are on the edge of bankruptcy. Persuasion is witty, and romantic and comments on society’s imposition to turn down love and dreams. It includes a love triangle too. According to Netflix’s description- “Living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is an uncomforting woman with modern sensibilities”. It further said that When Frederick Wentworth comes back into her life again, Anne has to choose between her past her and her heart. whether she can seize her second chance or not is something we have to witness. The movie has a modern touch which is quite visible in the trailer as well without losing the period touch. This film is Carrie’s debut feature film thus she has tried to put a modern outlook to bring about a fresh view in the movie.
