First Trailer for Netflix’s ‘PERSUASION’ Reminds Us Not to Let Anyone Tell Us How to Live or Who to Love

Netflix has today revealed the first trailer and key art for the upcoming adaptation of the last novel completed by Jane Austen, Persuasion.

Directed by Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House), from a screenplay written by Alice Victoria Winslow and Ron Bass, the film stars Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey, Suspiria), Cosmo Jarvis (Calm with Horses, Lady Macbeth) and Henry Golding (A Simple Favor). Living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot (Johnson) is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities. When Frederick Wentworth (Jarvis) – the dashing one she let get away – comes crashing back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances.

The ensemble cast is rounded out with Nikki Amuka-Bird (The Outfit, “Luther”), Mia McKenna-Bruce (“The Witcher,” “Get Even”) and Richard E. Grant (Gosford Park, Withnail and I).

The film is produced by Andrew Lazar (Mad Chance), Christina Weiss Lurie (Fourth & Twenty Eight Films) and MRC Film and Exec-Produced by Elizabeth Cantillon (Bisous Pictures), Michael Constable and David Fliegel.

Persuasion releases in select cinemas nationwide on 8th July before dropping on Netflix from 15th July.

In the meantime, don’t let anyone tell you how to live or who to love, and we’ll leave you to enjoy the aforementioned first trailer.
