Found this very annoying, all that twittering going on, expected much better from PBS.
I LOVED this movie!!! It is funny, entertaining and even my husband sat through it with me. One of Jane Austin's best stories and this version is beautifully done; from the acting & soundtrack to the photography.
Beautiful version! My favourite of all 4 film versions offered at the VPL. Perfectly captures the spirit of the book in every way.

Emma is too ridiculous in this adaption. Emma is supposed to have a degree of elegance about her, which Romola Garai does not portray in this adaption. If you want to see a good adaption, watch the 1996 adaption with Gynweth Paltrow. Personally, the casting could be better in this.
I haven't read Emma all the way through, but I absolutely ADORE Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller. They were perfect choices for these characters, and this adaptation gets full marks from me!
I had not remember Emma being *this* annoying when I read the book. She is truly vacuous and snobby in this mini-series, the worst possible combination. These characteristics were really accentuated in this version of Emma. Her eyes are opened so wide so often that it looks like they are about to pop out of her head, adding to the ridiculousness of her character. What a disappointing rendition. I have always been so fond of BBC renditions. A flop.
I so love this version of Emma, my favorite Austen book! Romola Garai's performance is spot on!
Five stars+!! Beautifully done. Well-crafted screenplay. Perfectly cast and performed. Great photography. Look no further. This is the Emma to see!
LOVE love love this version!!!
Romola Garai's performance is the only element that persuades me to rate this film as high as I have. For the best version of "EMMA" see the 1996's version starring Gwyenth Paltrow. That's all.
