The fuzzy cloak Gwyneth Paltrow (Emma Woodhouse) wears to the Christmas gathering at the Weston's is the same costume Julie Cox (Annabella Milbanke) wears after her wedding in Byron (2003). See more »
During Mr. Knightley's proposal scene, Emma's hair changes. At first, the curls are quite close to her forehead, by the end of the scene, they are all the way back on her crown. See more »
A suspicion has darted into my head that I cannot get rid of - Mr. Knightley and Jane Fairfax are a couple!
Mrs. Weston, please do not take to matchmaking, you do it ill!

Gwyneth Paltrow does an awesome job capturing the attitude of Emma. She is funny without being excessively silly, yet elegant. She puts on a very convincing British accent (not being British myself, maybe I'm not the best judge, but she fooled me...she was also excellent in "Sliding Doors"...I sometimes forget she's American ~!).
Also brilliant are Jeremy Northam and Sophie Thompson and Phyllida Law (Emma Thompson's sister and mother) as the Bates women. They nearly steal the show...and Ms. Law doesn't even have any lines!
