My recent rewatch journey included the adaptations of Emma (I own three and have watched two of those three with the third version getting its review later this month). Today I reviewed BBCs 2009 adaptation that was more miniseries than film starring Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have "issues" with the miniseries and its lack of sophistication, but overall, I do adore this version. It's more of a whimsical version, really. And as someone who appreciates individuality in cinema, I really, honestly do enjoy this take.
If you'd like to know more specifics or reasons behind my likes, dislikes and rambled fangirl thoughts on the romance, you can read the review* down below.
(*The ONE thing I was horribly remiss about and blanked on talking about in said review is the ball. Oh. My. Gosh. The vitally important dance between Emma and Knightley? It's gorgeously choreographed and staged.)
This makes two reviews of Emma down, one to go.
As always, I'd love to know what you think of this version. Share your thoughts!
