I was a bit thrown by the tone of the Netflix Persuasion trailer but will give it a chance.  The books about regret, longing, and hope.   The trailer isn’t really showcasing that.  I loved the 1995 adaptation.  I felt it really captured both characters and got the Wentworth letter scene perfect.  The Sally Hawkins adaptation didn’t work and especially screwed up the letter scene.

Sometimes an adaptation wins me over despite drastic changes like Mansfield Park (1999). But if Netflix ruins Wentworth’s letter which I consider one of the most romantic Austen scenes ever I will not be pleased.
