poster for the romantic comedy Modern PersuasionA modern re-telling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. Wren Cosgrove (Alicia Witt) is a happy, single, self-confessed workaholic who, after rising to the top of the corporate ladder, finds herself coming home every night to her cat.

When her firm is hired by Owen Jasper, a former boyfriend who wanted Wren to abandon her career, long-lost feelings are stirred. If she can persuade Owen that he could be happy with a career woman, she may have a second chance at true love.

But the course of rue love never runs smooth, even the second time around; before Wren can make up her mind about Owen, she learns that her own assistant is dating him.
