"A New Emma..."
There are scores of Austen adaptations, and tonight, we get another one: Masterpiece Classic is offering what looks like an excellent version of "Emma."
This new one stars Ramola Garai in the title role, and Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightey. Michael Gambon plays Emma's father.
I am looking forward to watching this new version, but, I will be recording it, since I have other plans for tonight. (Pizza and Karaoke Party) I will be watching it later.
But I ask you: What's your favorite movie or TV version of a Jane Austen Book?
P.S. Monday, January 25. I just finished watching the first of the three part "Emma." It is a refreshing change. I really enjoyed it. The next two parts to follow will be one hour each week. Even though I have read the book and watched a few other versions of the movie, I always enjoy watching them.
