Reviews & Summaries
Whew! Now that I got that out of my system I can move on and begin raving about the actual movie and its actors. This film has everything including drama, romance, and comedy. I do love how the movie highlights Emma's faults enough to give you an accurate picture of her character but still manages to get you to root for her. She is by no means a perfect heroine, but she is young and she does mature in the end. I am absolutely in love with the cast. Romola Garai is phenomenal as the childlike Emma. I am convinced that she is the main reason that I was able to stand the selfish character. Jonny Lee Miller is perfect as the sensible and kind Mr. Knightly, and Michael Gambon as always, is Michael Gambon.
Overall this film is a very good adaptation of the novel and it is a perfect candidate for a rainy Saturday movie marathon (it is four episodes that equal 3 hours and 49 minutes all together). So, make some popcorn and enjoy!
Every girl deserves a Mr. Knightly!!!!!!!!!
