    What do people think about Emma herself in the written story?

    I think Austen did a masterful work with this story. I mean Emma is not really a particularly likable person. Snobby, using people for her own glorification, yet I find myself totally rooting for her happiness and sympathetic to her pains. When she ends up with the man who wants to help her be a better person, I am so happy.

    What do others think?...
    I read it too long ago to remember, but in this particular film I liked her and was glad she had a happy ending.

    The little review guy in our newspaper is clapping hard and falling out of his seat. Looks like it's a good one.

    Thanks! I'll get my video tape ready!
    Apparently, it's 150 minutes long.

    PBS description:
    "Hattie Morahan (The Golden Compass) plays levelheaded Elinor Dashwood and Charity Wakefield (Jane Eyre) is her impulsive sister Marianne. Though poor, they attract a trio of very promising gentlemen. Will the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love? Adapted by Andrew Davies comes a new adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel."

    *laugh* I was actually quite surprised when I saw that version of Sense and Sensibility, not realizing that it featured the likes of Alan Rickman and Hugh Grant. Although, it did make for an interesting film. Alan Rickman seems to play brooding characters spectacularly well. Whereas, Hugh Grant seems to play haphazardly clueless character fairly well. It will be interesting to see how the two characters are characterized differently in this version.

    Then again, I really should get around to seeing Emma from last week. What with work and filing taxes, I haven't had as much time as I usually do. I also wonder whether I should wait for part II of Sense and Sensibility to air before watching part I.

    Mmm, indeed.

    But this one is wonderful. Janet McTeer as Mrs. Dashwood. And the Dashwood daughters are lovely. And Colonel Branden is hunky. And...

    We rewatched S&S with Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant last night, and I have to say she bugged the heck out of me. Too much emoting and lip trembling. I don't think tenderness comes naturally to her.

    But I loved her interpretation in Much Ado About Nothing - very witty, feisty, even bitchy, and believably in love.

    She's a great comic actress, but I don't like her in dramas. Didn't like Dead Again either.
