Dakota Johnson gets to take her shot at an Austen heroine.

 

 

 

 

This looks cute and we love the casting.

 

 

We’re a little surprised to see a release like this in mid-summer, since it feels like the perfect holiday film. We’ll admit that we would have rolled our eyes at the idea of Dakota Johnson playing the lead in a Jane Austen adaptation five years ago, but she’s proven herself to be a good actress with a certain droll coolness that makes her perfect for a character like Anne Elliott. The accent seems to be on point. And it’s never a bad idea to sit around looking at Richard E. Grant being stuffy or Henry Golding being dreamy. It’s pretty people in beautiful costumes sitting around in gorgeous settings while working their way through problems of no consequence. We’re in.
