“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence. ... The real evils of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself.”

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.

Knightly: My most beloved Emma. I cannot make speeches. If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more, but you know what I am. I have lectured you and scolded you and you have born it as no other woman would have. - BBC's Emma, 2009 (Romola Garai and Johnny Lee Miller)
