Emma is full of herself and likes to think she is an expert at matchmaking. She herself has decided not to marry, ever, but is determined to set others up. But that backfires on a regular basis and many people are hurt in the process. Will she learn to be a good person and not just have manners? *Spoiler* though not really a spoiler since Austen wanted to give her heroines happy endings, this ends with Emma growing up mentally and marrying the man right for her. Mr Knightly *swoon*. He is a real man.
Every time I watch a period piece I notice that I start to mimic their speech patterns. For a week I was speaking proper English in a slightly posh accent (worse than my usual speaking ways). Sorry to all those who had to listen. Then again, it is so beautiful to converse is such a way that is clear and free of acronyms.
I love this adaptation, it's fun. The performances are fabulous, and I cannot find fault. The only problem is with myself. I have yet to read the novel (Persuasion being the only Austen I have read, but I have started on Pride and Prejudice) and am not able to do a comparison to the original story. Bad April. Getting to it.
Watch this! Beware, it is a romance/family drama.
