Sunday, February 21 at 9 p.m. – Masterpiece Classic "Persuasion"

(Rochester, NY) Sally Hawkins ("Little Britain") appears as Anne Elliot, destined for spinsterhood at age 27 after being persuaded eight years earlier to refuse the proposal of dashing Captain Wentworth (Rupert Penry-Jones, "Casanova"). Then chance brings them together again. While her better days are past, his are definitely ahead as he's now rich and free to play the field among eligible young beauties. Anthony Head ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") co-stars as Anne's spendthrift father. Masterpiece Classic “Persuasion” airs Sunday, February 21 at 9 p.m on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/ cable 1011 and 11).
