I cringe anytime the lines from the book are changed or dropped. I would like to hear others' opinions on the subject.
Well, I cringed all the way through Emma3, because the novel was distorted so ridiculously. My attitude toward Emma2 is that since it had to tell the story in the inadequate space of two hours, lines and events had to be omitted. Admittedly, Jane and Frank were neglected in this version. But for a 2-hour version, I think this is a good adaption.
and i have never seen Emma1.
