Emma is too ridiculous in this adaption. Emma is supposed to have a degree of elegance about her, which Romola Garai does not portray in this adaption. If you want to see a good adaption, watch the 1996 adaption with Gynweth Paltrow. Personally, the casting could be better in this.

I haven't read Emma all the way through, but I absolutely ADORE Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller. They were perfect choices for these characters, and this adaptation gets full marks from me!

I had not remember Emma being *this* annoying when I read the book. She is truly vacuous and snobby in this mini-series, the worst possible combination. These characteristics were really accentuated in this version of Emma. Her eyes are opened so wide so often that it looks like they are about to pop out of her head, adding to the ridiculousness of her character. What a disappointing rendition. I have always been so fond of BBC renditions. A flop.

I so love this version of Emma, my favorite Austen book! Romola Garai's performance is spot on!

Romola Garai's performance is the only element that persuades me to rate this film as high as I have. For the best version of "EMMA" see the 1996's version starring Gwyenth Paltrow. That's all.

An excellent interpretation of Jane Austen's novel, with developed supporting characters and lovely period costumes, hairstyles, etc. The leads have great friendship chemistry, and the emphasis is more on the multiple subplots than on the title character. The ending did feel a bit rushed (in terms of Harriet's romance, anyway) but I really enjoyed this.

Fine version of Austen's book. Miller, Greig, Gambon do fine; Romola Garai is very appealing as the heroine.

One of our favourite movies, we borrow it regularly for an uplifting evening together. Jane Austen has been compared to Shakespeare as one of the best British authors, I was a bit skeptical at first but her insights and great plots have convinced me. You can watch the movie at that level or as pure romantic entertainment, it works! And the production values are perfect!
