AustenBlog informs me that actor Corin Redgrave, whole stole every scene he was in in the 1995 movie adaptation of Austen's Persuasion, died on April 6th. He was 70 years old, and no cause of death was mentioned in his Times obit. I am sincerely sorry to hear it.

But if you've never seen the '95 version of Persuasion, or it's been a while, you should totally rent it. As a book, it's not as sprightly as Austen's more popular works, but it's incredibly sweet, and it has a dry, quiet sense of humor that the movie (and Redgrave's performance in particular) does a wonderful job of capturing.
