Eight years earlier, Anne Elliot, the daughter of a financially troubled aristocratic family, was persuaded to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a young seaman, who, though promising, had poor family connections. When her father rents out the family estate to Admiral Croft, Anne is thrown into company with Frederick, because his sister is Mrs. Croft. Frederick is now a rich and successful Captain, and a highly eligible bachelor. Whom will he marry? One of Anne's sister's husband's sisters? Or will he and Anne rekindle the old flame?

The orange long-sleeved gown with accordion-pleat trim on the over-sleeves worn by Lady Willoughby when she meets Lady Russell in the Pump Room is the same costume worn by an extra in the Pump Room when Anne talks with Mr. Elliot in Persuasion
(2007). The same costume is also worn by the dance teacher during the fan-language lesson in The Regency House Party
(2004), and by an extra in the square at the end of Goya's Ghosts
(2006). See more
