We just finished watching BBC's new Emma, I had seen it before on YouTube but it was great to get to see it on a larger screen and not in ten minute segments.=)
I have to say, it is very difficult for me to compare the different Emma's. This is now the fourth one that we own. There are aspects on each that I like, although I'm really not big on the old BBC one. I grew pup watching the Kate Beckinsale one so that is the most familiar to me. The Gwyneth Paltrow version was a little too silly for my liking but I do enjoy it. This one I really enjoyed, although they did take out a few of my favorite lines. I think Romola Garai did an excellent job, and that she makes a very good Emma, though a little bit bouncier than I am used to her being. I loved the music, and although I do not think the dancing was entirely accurate for that period it was very fun and made me want to get up and join them.
