Sally Hawkins and Rupert Penry-Jones star in this adaptation of the Jane Austin classic about a lovelorn woman who receives a second chance for true happiness. Anne Elliot was just nineteen when she fell hopelessly in love with dashing naval officer Frederick Wentworth, so when her family attempted to convince her that she was making a terrible mistake the smitten young woman hastily broke off her engagement. That decision has haunted her ever since, and despite the fact that nearly a decade has passed not a day goes by that Anne doesn't long for Frederick's embrace. Now, eight years later, Frederick has returned a highly decorated, and extremely wealthy military man.

Oh what a nice movie! Can it ever get any better than a good Jane Austen story? So romantic...even though I found it completely frustrating that it took them until the last 6 min. of the movie to finally get together. This should have been called Frustration..lol. At least on my part. But thank goodness all went perfectly well at the end. Yay!More
The perfect Austen adaptation for me. The best of ITV1's Austen season. I really loved this one a lot. Of course Rupert-Penry Jones is in it, so what's not to like? Possibly the only adaptation which comes close to pride and prejudice.
THIS IS AVALIBLE ON YOUTUBE TO WATCH. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THAT YOU WATCH IT ASAP
