Jane Austen's Emma Reviews

November 19, 2019
[Kate] Beckinsale is well supported by the rest of the cast, especially Mark Strong as Knightley and Prunella Scales as the chattering spinster Emma unkindly insults.
November 19, 2019
Perhaps it is a function of a television budget, but [Andrew] Davies and [Sue] Birtwistle, with director Diarmuid Lawrence, opt not for postcard lavishness but for simple clarity of presentation.
November 19, 2019
Although [Kate] Beckinsale hasn't much romantic chemistry with [Mark] Strong at a point late in the story when she should have, she is irresistible.
November 18, 2019
Emma, as adapted by Andrew Davies, captures not just Austen's light charm but the pinpricks of her social criticism.

"Emma" is a feast for the eyes and a balm for the heart.
November 18, 2019
It is understated and sly, loaded with a sense that even a society as well-ordered as Emma's leaves plenty of room for comic misjudgments and happy endings.

The acting and writing with this outing make it much more palatable. [Kate] Beckinsale manages to make her Emma a very likable-albeit selfish and spiteful-heroine who obviously needs to do some growing up.

2 1/2 hours of that [Kate] Beckinsale smirk is just too, too much of a bad thing.
