Rated 5 out of 5 by futuredirector Best Version Ever!!!!
The is the best version of Emma that I have ever seen. The characters are wonderful. The relationship between Emma and Mr. Knightly is so believable and real. Not like previous versions I have seen. Micheal Gambon as Emma's gives the role real character and warmth. Very nicely done!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by writer17 Two Thumbs Up!
Great casting and the best version yet. Emma transported me back in time for a real taste of what Jane Austen's thoughts might have been as she was writing the novel.
In my opinion, this approx. 4 hour movie goes by too quickly.

I love this movie. It is my second favorite version after the Gwyneth Paltrow/Jeremy Northam version. The story is comprehensive, the music is beautiful, the acting is fine. The more I watch it the more I love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LDS64 Best rendition of Emma
I am a huge Jane Austen fan and am very picky when choosing video renditions of her books. This one was far the best I have ever seen of Emma. Beautifully done. The Walmart price was the lowest I found. It was a no-brainer. I highly recommend it for any Jane Austen fans.

BBC version Emma (2009) (Widescreen) is absolutely fabulous from the actress who plays Emma Woodhouse to Mr. Knightley are amazing. I love this movie and I never get tire watching it. It contains two dvs lasting about 2 hours each; they are worth seeing them. This version is in my opinion better than the Gwen Paltrow did.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LuluDownSouth Perfect!
I really like this version of Emma. I think Romola Garai brings a different perspective on Emma: she's lighthearted and funny. The movie was beautifully done. It gets two thumbs up from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Soundspretty Great Version of Emma
This is the best version of Emma I have seen so far. All the actors are likable and believable in their roles. It has a more modern flair to it (in some of the mannerisms and expressions) that helps keep the period piece from feeling too... old. It's more romantic than anything. I loved the actress who played Emma. She was able to capture the spirit of a teenage girl who was far from a grown woman, but not a little girl either. Mr. Knightley was excellent as well. Their blooming romance felt very natural. The movie/TV special is split into four parts at an hour long each, however they go by very fast. It's easy to lose yourself in the story. There aren't too many DVD extras, mostly behind the scenes set design and costumes information, but the movie is substantial enough on its own.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ClassicalGirl Excellent mini-series
Emma, a classic by Jane Austen was wonderfully done in this mini-series adaption directed by Jim O'Hanlon and starring Romola Garai, Johnny Lee Miller, and Michael Gambon. The cinemtography was beautiful, the acting was spot on, and the script was well done. This is both my favorite adaptation of Emma, as well as the best adaptation of Emma. I highly recommend this! 5/5 Stars.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Funkster1 Emma 2009
This is the most recent interpretation of Jane Austin's "Emma" that reflects a romantic view of the novel against our modern times. It is a lavish production coming from the BBC and is well done.
