In the novel, Anne Elliot, the heroine Austen called "almost too good for me", has let herself be persuaded not to marry Frederick Wentworth, a fine and attractive man without means. Eight years later, Captain Wentworth returns from the Napoleonic Wars with a triumphant naval career behind him, a substantial fortune to his name, and an eagerness to wed. Austen explores the complexities of human relationships as they change over time.

the story line didn't capture what Austen was writing about.
Jane Austen is never disappointing but this condensed version wasn't good.
The performance was fine
don't try to rewrite a classic
