Emma {2009} What I love most about the 2009 Emma is that she and Harriet act exactly as I would imagine two young women, just approaching adulthood, would act, even in the 21st century. They are giggly and goofy and they make mistakes and take the wrong advice, even if its their own. They are imperfect, and that is the beauty of Jane Austen.
