Gakked from innerslytherin:
You are Anne Elliot of Persuasion! Let's face it, you're easily persuaded, especially when faced with choices that are or aren't 'the Elliot way.' But this doesn't mean that you don't have conviction. Actually, your sense of duty is overwhelming. And though you won't stick your neck out too often, you have learned to speak up when it counts. To boot, you know how to handle sticky situations. You love deeply and constantly.
Which Austen heroine are you?
"Persuasion" is a favorite story of mine. It's not as well known as Austen's other novels -- like its heroine, it is easily overlooked, compared to its showier siblings like "Pride and Prejudice". As I've grown older, I find I enjoy it more, with its tale of second chances. My favorite adaptation is the BBC's 1995 one starring Amanda Root as Anne and Ciaran Hinds as Wentworth, which I'd bought a few days ago, having seen it on DVD at my local video store for the first time and having snatched it up immediately like a long-lost friend.

Current Music: "Vergissmeinnicht" by Eisbrecher
I am afraid that I found the production you speak of to be quite disagreeable. I was greatly perplexed at how a Jane Austen movie could include a kiss on the street at the end.
Far superior is the 1971 BBC production of Persuasion, starring Ann Firbank and Bryan Marshall. Best line of the whole movie...
"You want to marry Ann? Whatever for?"
