The lineup also includes the acclaimed "Emma," starring Kate Beckinsale; "Pride and Prejudice," the Emmy Award-winning miniseries that made Colin Firth a heartthrob; and "Miss Austen Regrets," a film biography that dramatizes Austen's lost loves.
"Persuasion" - Sally Hawkins ("Little Britain") appears as Anne Elliot, destined for spinsterhood at age 27 after being persuaded eight years earlier to refuse the proposal of dashing Captain Wentworth (Rupert Penry-Jones, "Casanova"). Then chance brings them together again. While her better days are past, his are definitely ahead as he's now rich and free to play the field among eligible young beauties. Anthony Head ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") co-stars as Anne's spendthrift father. 90 minutes.
