Due to the recent BBC adaptation of Emma I am going to start reading and listening to (audiobooks) Jane Austen's novels. I wondered if anyone had read Emma and then watched the BBC adaptation and if so, what do you think of it. I did read the proposal scene online from the book to compare. I also saw a critique of the Gywneth Paltrow/Jeremy Northam film which said that the novel portrays Mr Knightley as a fair landowner and employer who cared about his workers. I suppose his talk with Mr Martin was an example of this in the recent BBC version. For me, Jonny Lee Miller was an excellent Mr Knightley in that even the smallest movements of his face portrayed his thoughts and feelings. Anyone wish to comment?
