Aside from too much running in the movie and a few scenes missing, it was a really enjoyable adaptation. I am quite pleased with the main cast. The cinematography and some scene choices seemed a bit odd, but all in all, a well done adaptation.
I mean, the acting is good, but I don't like the script, it didn't allow any development of the friendship between Emma and Harriet, it all seems so jumpy and rushed. I do like the final scene where Emma speaks to Harriet and Martin. The chemistry between the main couple isn't there for me. I think that if they recasted everyone to be another character in the film, it would have been much better and fitting to the film, the only fitting portrayal for me was Frank Churchil, Mrs Elton, Miss Bates (for me, one of the best portraxyals of this character) and Mr. Woodhouse. I would cast Samantha Morton as Emma, Olivia Williams as Harriet, Kate Beckingsdale as Jane, switch actors for Mr. Elton and Mr. Knightley, switch Mrs. Elton and Mrs. Weston, the rest can stay for the matter being :D. So, not a bad movie, but could have been soo much better. Still, it's Austen, so grateful for any adaptation.
