Persuasion by Jane Austen. I love the rest of her collection too but this I think is my favourite.

Persuasion - another fabulous adaptation of a Jane Austen novel. So many wonderful subtleties in the performances given by the leads in this film. My favourite portrayals of Anne and Captain Wentworth ever!
