Did You Know?

The pale green muslin gown with intricate ivory lace appliqués that Lucy Robinson as Mrs. Elton wears during the strawberry picking scene at Donwell is the same gown worn by Jennifer Granville (as Mrs. Hurst) at Pemberley in "Pride and Prejudice" (1980) and by an extra at the London party where Lord Byron meets Annabella Milbanke in Byron (2003) (TV). Robinson herself plays Mrs. Hurst in "Pride and Prejudice" (1995). The costume is also worn by the dancing mistress in "The Regency House Party" (2004).See more »

The best Emma yet, 23 October 1999
Author: cooper-24 from Ottawa, Canada

While I adore Jeremy Northam in the Winslow boy, Mark Strong is outstanding as Mr. Knightley in this much more human version of Emma. She is, as Jane Austen rightly stated, not our favourite character, and in the Gwyneth Paltrow version she is even more vain and manipulative. In this version, Kate B makes her very young and yet willing to learn. I liked it very much and hope the two main characters get picked up very quickly for more movies so that we in Canada can see them more often.
