    I’m sorry Louisa launching herself onto the ground for no reason is hilarious. I know she’s embarrassed #Persuasion

    if i had been in the writers' room when they were adapting persuasion i would've proposed "there could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison" to be changed to "he's just like me fr"

    Netflix’s Persuasion making Anne the wine aunt is honestly great to me. Along with making Mary the vapid ww who misuses terms to make herself constantly the center of attention. An empath? Yes perfect. Nailed it.

    Watching the new Netflix version of Persuasion and it turns out I don't give a shit about historical accuracy, as long as everyone in the film is so very pretty.

    And Netflix has a new Jane Austen adaptation, you hear about this folks? Persuasion. It’s not working on the viewers, that much is clear.

    Netflix looking at how much people are talking about Persuasion on social media. “Ok so in Persuasion 2: 2 Bath, 2 Furious we’re gonna have more wine and barouche races.”
