The film was criticized after the release of the first trailer. Viewers did not like the fact that the main character has a completely different character than in the book, it is more frivolous and immature. She also does not act according to the customs of the time (the novel by Jane Austen appeared posthumously in 1817), in addition, she wears her loose hair, which was unimaginable at the time. Based on the trailer, viewers called the new adaptation of “Persuasion” a mix “Bridgertons” With a failed falsification of “Pride and Prejudice”.
