  • Disappointing.

  • Enjoyable Jane Austen.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. If one enjoyed Emma then this is a must to see.

  • I loved this adaptation. Sally Hawkins (from Mike Leigh's Happy Go Lucky) is wonderful as Anne and Rupert Penry-Jones (from Spooks) is a dreamboat Captain Wentworth. The direction and cinematography is lovely, too, especially the long portrait-style shots of Anne.

  • Pretty much my most favourite of the Jane Austen books. Brilliantly portrayed.
