    It is a truth universally acknowledged that there is no such thing as too many Jane Austen adaptations. From Pride and Prejudice to Sense and Sensibility, Austen’s material has been brought to both the small and big screen for decades — and some are decidedly better than others.

    Most recently, Netflix tried its hand at Persuasion, the final novel completed by Austen before her death.

Frederick Wentworth (Cosmo Jarvis), who she was persuaded not to marry eight years ago, after he returns from war. With her family facing bankruptcy, Anne must decide whether to pursue new love or leave the past behind.
