Not my favorite Emma but it’s an interesting interpretation
A nearly perfect adaptation of a classic novel
I really enjoyed this adaptation. It was better than I thought it would be
My favorite Emma. It keeps the dialogue mostly intact unlike the 2009 disgrace. Rachel Portman’s score is chef’s kiss. And best Knightley!
Lovely and peaceful with charm and that certain glowy cinematography that fits so well
Good period romance comedy movie, well made and worth watching
Jane Austen would be proud! A charming story made well-directed, acted convincing, and visually beautiful
Love this one in comparison to the remake. I think the remake was a bit too sterile, and too silly. This one is warm.
Such a lovely movie to watch when you are in need of a romantic period movie
Not my favorite. The heart and emotions conveyed in the miniseries was not present here. Plus, all the characters’ hairstyles were awful 🙈
