When other young ladies and gentlemen doze on the sofa or stare admiringly at their reflections in the looking-glass, young bluestockings gather together with like-minded souls and have merry debates about novels, ideas, and that delightful (yet futuristic) invention, the cinema.
So please join us here next month (November 19) for our next "Young Bluestockings Attend the Cinema" virtual outing, which will be...
The 1995 film of PERSUASION, starring Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds!
Ah, yes. Jane Austen!
Young bluestockings do love Jane Austen, with her wit, her wisdom, and her romances.
This version of Persuasion is a gorgeous, atmospheric movie, and if you haven't ever seen it, you're in for a treat!
But don't let me influence you -- what we're asking for are your honest opinions on the movie. (What did you like, or dislike? What would you have done differently? Which home would you most like to live in? Which actors or actresses are the most swoon-worthy? Did you spot the person who later played a relative of Harry Potter?)
So please stop by here on Tuesday, November 19, and join our lively discussion! We promise to brew you a fresh pot of virtual tea when you arrive...
