Romantic Comedy, adapted from Jane Austen's Persuasion. When a medical student returns home to reel in her ridiculous, reality-show family, she reignites a flame for her now-famous ex-fiancee. (119 pages)

What this script does incredibly well is provide a contemporary version of a Jane Austen classic. The parallels are spot-on and clever... Each of Austen’s characters undergo a modern twist and it’s enjoyable to see how seamlessly the storyline transfers over to the 21st-century."
