A Certain Persuasion (2016)

Story – Know Your Own Happiness

…in an excellent modern parallel for the family and romantic dynamics of Persuasion, “Know Your Own Happiness” allows a young man to revisit his capitulation to his family’s rejection of his bisexuality with a chance to choose true love this time. I particularly liked the subtlety with which the theme was developed. For much of the story, the Austen reference is all about the protagonist’s reluctant attendance at a book club…and then the Captain Wentworth-analogue enters and suddenly all is made clear.

An adaptation that successfully transfers the pressure Anne’s family put on her into a scenario that makes sense for the current day. The fact that Cooper hadn’t actually read Persuasion made the parallels humorous.
