The mini series takes it's time to evolve and develop the story. I'll certainly be watching again & again. The explanation of the roots of Mr. Woodhouse's hypochondria was also interesting. With Michael Gambon, Annabel Mullion, Lyla Barrett-Rye, Jodhi May. While screenwriter Sandy Welch had chosen to use more modern language in her dialogues, I don’t think she needed to stray too far from the original to achieve this. A few weeks later, village gossip and speculation focuses on the arrival of young Jane Fairfax and a large piano she has been sent by a mystery admirer. What a difference from her guilt-ridden Briony in the movie Atonement.
Sign up. I've seen countless snippets out of sequence, never truly understanding the storyline or knowing the character. All it took was seeing Jane Fairfax mentioned, and that reminded me of Edward Fairfax Rochester, and Mrs. Fairfax, and off I went on a tangent through Jane Eyre! Nice to have this older version, which I had not seen yet. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. But then again, my view can change as I continue watching. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 8, 2020. Anyway spent four hours last night watching all four hours straight off - unusual for me. Once she has married off her close companions, she alights upon the pretty Harriet Smith to fashion into her new playmate and ally. Emma is one of those heroines one loves to hate, of course, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 27, 2016.
Emma Woodhouse makes one hilarious attempt after another at marital matches for her friends. Rich, independent and kind-spirited, Emma Woodhouse has no need to marry, but nothing delights her more than matchmaking those around her. CLICK HERE TO GO TO MY REVIEW OF EPISODE 2. Least favourite Jane Austen becomes a favourite.
The supporting cast is wonderful, and so is the music, costumes and the locations.
Video availability outside of United States varies. That is good that I finally got confirmation (from here) that Knightley is the narrator at the beginning.
CLICK HERE TO GO TO EPISODE 3, THE CONCLUSION. She may well be one of the best-cast Austen heroines for their roles in my opinion, let’s just say, neck and neck with Jennifer Ehle’s Elizabeth Bennet. When Frank's controlling aunt dies, the Westons expect him to propose to Emma - but his actions set in motion a chain of events that both shock Emma and make her realise something that has been in plain sight all along. For the casting of Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightly, however, I have a little reservation, in this first episode anyway. There are no 'big name' stars in this production and no fancy locations. But go ahead and enjoy… it’s nothing like Edward Fairfax Rochester’s gloomy world.

The actress who portrays Emma captures her well - I think Jane herself would have little to quibble about her performance. Overall, the visuals are captivating, beautiful shots of the English country landscape, the well situated mansions and their interior renderings. This newest adaptation of Emma is probably the best I’ve seen, and Romola Garai easily the best-cast Emma so far. Miller is its winning ingredient. Disc had no scratches.
As a devout Jane Austen fan, I found this version to be a delightful adaptation of one of my less favored Austen novels. I’m so disappointed that Canadians are shut out due to copyright reasons! By that I mean that this adaptation manages to stay mostly faithful to the events and characters of the novel, while making some welcome "improvements" that are very much in keeping with the spirit of the book. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 18, 2018. Arti’s reviews of Emma (2009), Episodes 1 to 3, have been compiled into one article and published in the Jane Austen Centre Online Magazine. I've seen three adaptations of Emma, the 1996 version with Gwyneth Paltrow, the 1997 TV adaptation with Kate Beckinsale and finally this one, starring Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller.
Emma teases Mr Knightley about Jane, but he remains tight-lipped. Harriet has been rescued from an embarrassing situation and her susceptible emotions have been stirred again.
Well, Garai’s Emma is guilt-ridden too as the errant, over-confident matchmaker, but her genuine heart and willingness to own up to her misjudgment have made her personality shine through. I did not enjoy the book as much as I did the other Austen novels, and did not like the Gwyneth Paltrow movie version much.
Instead we get what I was hoping for: the story as it was meant to be told. Episode 1. Oh dear, oh dear… Sometimes I feel ds’ wonderful phrase “swivelhead” describes me, too. Despite having a wonderful time at a village ball, she decides not.

By the way, I heard Whip It mentioned on radio today. This "Emma" takes considerable time to lay a solid foundation, going into detail to explain Emma's dislike of Jane and their jealousy of each other.

Reviewed in the United States on November 4, 2020. Though often mistaken in her judgement, she is counseled and criticized by Mr. Knightley whose attentions to her are motivated by more than brotherly love. I’ve particularly appreciated the few overhead shots, and some of the contrasting darker scenes in the beginning. What was intended as a day of fun turns into a day of agony for everyone on the Box Hill excursion.
