    I found this movie to be okay but after seeing the BBC version with Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller, well the movie just lost all it's glitter. Watch the BBC version (2009). 7 years 11 months ago

    The 1996 version of Jane Austen's Emma is a whole lot of fun, a comedy about an incorrigible match-maker who should weed out her garden before going into others', with Gwyneth Paltrow giving her usual charming mid-to-late '90s performance. The film is genuinely funny, Austen's trademark wit supplemented by editing that understands comedy, cutting from one moment to the next in a kind of accelerated montage that's entirely amusing and keeps the pace up. If I go looking for flaws, then perhaps Mr Knightley is too sympathetic to Emma too early, and maybe Emma's class snobishness doesn't come across as fully as in the book (is Paltrow too likable in the role?), but it still works as a period romcom with blazing dialog and a modern, but not too modern, feel. 2 years 9 months ago

    Again, this picture is not accurate. It belongs to the other 1996 Emma. This is the one with Gwenyth Paltrow. 9 years 2 months ago
