Last weekend I planned to watch the TV adaptations of Jane Austen's Emma during the week. There's an Emma discussion going on at Lights Camera History and I wanted to have every detail fresh on my mind before posting there. I have watched the four adaptations done so so but I only wrote reviews of two of them, the 2009 and the 1972 versions. Looking back it seems odd that I never did got to review my favourite adaptation - ITV's 1996 version with Kate Beckinsale in the title role.
Unfortunately life got in the way and I ended up not watching any of them. But that didn't stop me from adding my two cents about them. If possible it convinced me that I really need to watch them all again soon (especially has lots of fans are mentioning that the 2009 version improves with repeated viewing...).
So... if you like Jane Austen and you like period dramas feel free to head on to Lights Camera History and add your two cents too. Today there's a poll about Emma's dream cast and I'm sure there will be divided opinions about some of the actors. I'll see you there!
