SAMUEL GOLDWYN FILMS TO RELEASE
ROMANTIC COMEDY MODERN PERSUASION
ON DECEMBER 18, 2020

Especially in a year like 2020, we can always use Jane Austen to lighten our mood. Now, a modern film re-telling of her Persuasion, starring Alicia Witt, has been picked up by Samuel Goldwyn Films. The film also stars Shane McRae, Bebe Neuwirth, Liza Lapira and Daniela Pineda.

Wren Cosgrove is a happy, single, and self-confessed workaholic who, after rising to the top of the corporate ladder, finds herself coming home every night to her cat. When her firm is hired by Owen Jasper, “the man who got away,” long-lost feelings are stirred, giving Wren a second chance at true love.
