I’ll never forgive whoever decided on the line ‘Now we’re strangers, worse than strangers. We’re exes’

The remake of Jane Austen’s classic novel, Persuasion, has dropped on Netflix and despite it having an all-star cast and the potential to fill the void that is Bridgerton, not everyone has been all too pleased with the movie adaptation. Now everybody knows that the movie remake is never as good as the book but sometimes there are parts to be enjoyed, I wish the same could be said for Netflix’s Persuasion.

Whether it was the butchering of the most gut-wrenching quotes of the book or the desperate attempt at being relatable, not all Persuasion viewers were keen. Like every Netflix show and movie, once viewers had taken it all it, everyone heads straight to Twitter. People have not held back and shared their thoughts and cooked up some hilarious memes about Persuasion.
