Jane Austen's Emma Reviews
I love Emma's dad in this. He steals the show.
Once watching it i realised i had seen it before...this sucked.
Every character was well cast! Every single one, but especially Jane Fairfax and Frank Churchill. Maybe I wish Mr. Knightley had darker hair, but he did have the proper air and presence that I expected. Not surprisingly, scenes were condensed, but the result is a very well-paced movie. Obvious omissions did not detract from the development of the story, and I was pleased to see many of my favorite lines included. The harvest festival that concluded the movie was not in the book, but I liked the scene, and I actually much prefer the way in which the movie left Emma and Harriet's relationship over the way it was left in the book. The final scene even had me tearing up!
