Movie: Friendly Persuasion

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Genre: Life, war, just a touch of romance
Primary actors: Gary Cooper, Anthony Perkins
Length: 2 ¼ hours
Time period: Civil War, 1800’s
Year it came out: 1956
My overall opinion: It was good. We got it from Netflix, and the story detailed on the envelope didn’t even begin until about an hour in! It was a little pointless – not a lot of…storyline, purpose, something like that. But the dresses were fun, some parts were laugh-out-loud funny, some were sweet. Ugh, the DVD had a scratch, so we missed some… :P Very sad. So, there’s not anything “wrong” with the movie, but it wasn’t unbelievably awesome either.

I've been interested in this film because some friends said it was good. The title also comes up fairly frequently when I search for Jane Austen's Persuasion.
I recognize some of the actors from other older films I enjoy so I'll have to check this one out too. Thanks for this review! :)
