Emma (1996) Movie Review

Buy at Amazon

Review:

I know it’s fashionable to hate on Gwyneth Paltrow, but though she does seem… annoyingly oblivious to reality in many ways, I can’t join in, because she’s been in too many of my favorite movies. So clearly, if nothing else, she has great taste in roles.

Emma isn’t my favorite Austen adaptation, but it’s pretty high on the list – charming, witty, romantic, and with a host of excellent performances, of which my favorites are the delicious Jeremy Northam as Mr. Knightley and Sophie Thompson (Emma‘s sister) as the spinster Miss Bates.

My rating: 4 Stars (4 / 5)

Review:

My favorite movie of all time (so far). Every now and then I go for awhile without rewatching it and start thinking maybe it’s not sooo good, and isn’t it kind of depressing what poor Marianne goes through, and other such heresies. And then I pop it in the DVD player and within five minutes I am practically vibrating with glee over the wit and the acting and the eye candy and…

~swoon~

So yeah, favorite movie of all time.

My rating: 5 Stars (5 / 5)
