Talking about the cast of the Series Dakota Johnson as Anne Elliot, Henry Golding playing Mr. Elliot, and Richard E Grant playing Anne’s father Sir Walter Elliot, have some major talent in the cast of this movie.
In Persuasion, Anne Elliot is a single 27-year-old lady in the early 19th century who appears to have scant love possibilities — keep in mind, if you didn’t have such a ring on your finger by 21, you were probably on the shelf and going for spinsterhood back then.
Her snooty family, who were about to go bankrupt, didn’t really get her. The naval officer Anne was rejected eight years prior, Captain Frederick Wentworth then arrives back in town. He’s quite handsome and she’s still unmarried.
Their complex relationship is complicated further by the arrival of a wealthy new suitor – distant relative William Elliot.
Anne has to choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances.
