Persuasion’s mixed reviews call the Netflix movie “vaguely mortifying” and a “sweet distraction”

Persuasion, the Netflix adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel, is out in select theaters today before it hits the streamer next week – and the reviews are in.

The film stars Dakota Johnson as Anne Elliot, a young woman living with her snobbish family who are on the verge of bankruptcy. She may be only 27 years old, but this is the 19th century, and therefore she is on the verge of innovation, mourning the lost love of Frederick Wentworth (Cosmo Jarvis), a man whose family persuaded her not to marry eight years before. That is, until he reappears in her life. The cast also includes Henry Golding, Richard E. Grant, Suki Waterhouse, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Mia McKenna-Bruce.
