Admirers of Jane Austen won't want to miss Persuasion, starring Amanda Root as a selfless Austen heroine swayed from the course of true love by family considerations. This delicately played study of English country life circa 1814 features a spirited performance by Root and a fine supporting cast: Corin Redgrave and Sophie Thompson from Four Weddings and a Funeral, Phoebe Nicholls from Brideshead Revisited, and the late Susan Fleetwood from Heat and Dust.

1995 (PG) 104m/C GB Amanda Root, Ciaran Hinds, Susan Fleetwood, Corin Redgrave, Fiona Shaw, John Woodvine, Phoebe Nicholls, Samuel West, Sophie Thompson, Judy Cornwell, Felicity Dean, Simon Russell Beale, Victoria Hamilton, Emma Roberts; D: Roger Mitchell; W: Nick Dear, Jeremy Sams; C: John Daly.
