Believe it or not, we don’t purchase many movies. One that warrants a place in our library is Persuasion, based on the Jane Austen novel of the same name. Starring Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds, this 1995 BBC / WGBH / Masterpiece Theatre is one of the best of the Jane Austen screen adaptations. One interesting item is the relatively few people involved in the production of the movie. You may be surprised at what a great film has been created by such a minimal cast & crew, at least by “modern” standards. Indeed, the credits roll by very quickly. A truly fabulous film produced by a lean crew.
