Fantastic Friday: Jane Austen and the latest BBC Version of Emma
Deconstructing Miss Emma Woodhouse, by Laurel Ann of the Austenprose blog). There have been several Emma's but I think that by far Romola Garai is my favorite Emma. There is a uniqueness about her that just makes her endearing even when you are exasperated with her schemes! Jonny Lee Miller is Mr. George Knightley and what a Knightley he is! He fits the character like a charm. I've been watching Emma on PBS' Masterpiece Classics and am eager to see the last installment of the mini series which will air on PBS this Sunday. If you have not already watched it and are in the US you can go to: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/emma/watch.html to catch up.
