The cream and black plaid gown worn by a dancer at the Crown Ball is the same costume worn by a guest at the masked ball in St. Ives (1998), and by Julia Davis (Elizabeth Elliot) at Kellynch Hall in Persuasion (2007). See more »
Brilliant! Everything from the acting, the costumes, storyline, and music was just so superbly done. This version of Emma far surpasses its predecessors. Romola, actress staring as Emma, puts Pultrow to shame.
This movie sets itself apart from other versions of Emma. The storyline is very much dictated by the actual book. The actors and actresses really captured the characters in the story; it made all the difference in being able to identify and understand the characters.
Also, the setting and costumes they chose really captured the times. The color palate was sensational.
If you are a true Jane Austen fan, you will love this film. It is a must for your Austen collection!! WELL DONE!!
