Reviews

Rated out of 5 by from This adaptation of Emma is my favorite of them all. Although Emma is not my favorite Jane Austen book, this is my favorite mini series based on her novels. The mini series starts off when Emma (Romola Garai) is a baby, narrated by Mr. Knightley (Jonny Lee Miller), to give viewers who may not have read the book a background story. The place that is Hartfield has such beautiful decor. The house is decorated to give the sunny feel of Emma's personality and it's hard not to just be absorbed in the bright and wonderful colors. Mr. Knightley in this portrayal actually seems the right age. We see more interaction between Emma and Mr. Knightley and how they get along, so Mr. Knightley does not seem as creepy as he does in some other versions. They are very sarcastic and witty and you get a better idea of how close Mr. Knightley is to the Woodhouse family. Michael Gambon, who plays Emma's father, is also very charming. One of my favorites. Harriet Smith is also not quite as simple but I will say her hairstyle annoys me. Miss Bates in this movie is the best I've seen. The scene at Box Hill is done so well, my heart actually breaks for her. And again, when Emma tries to make amends for her actions on Box Hill, I find myself actually tearing up. The whole cast in this movie is fantastic. The Westons are delightful, the Eltons are ridiculous (as they should be), John Knightley is sarcastic and dry and Frank Churchill is very stylish. Even Jane Fairfax makes you feel sympathy for her situation. The costumes are made to reflect the personalities of those wearing them. The music is also very well done. This version is so sweet, funny, charming, sad and enchanting. I have watched it over and over and over again. I think that even someone who is not a Jane Austen fan will appreciate and love this adaptation. I highly recommend it to everyone.
