Dakota Johnson trades her strappy bikinis from Lost Daughter for bonnets and frills in Persuasion, which premieres on Netflix on July 15. She portrays Anne Elliot, Jane Austen’s eldest heroine, who, at the age of 27, is living with her obnoxious relatives and grieving for a long-lost love. And, based on these photos, the July heat won’t be the only thing that gets you sweating.
Persuasion is based on Jane Austen‘s final work of the same name, which was released six months after her death in 1817. Cosmo Jarvis, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Henry Golding, and Richard E. Grant feature in Carrie Cracknell‘s adaption.
