] what you think film adaptations should and should not be. ________
] I guess my main criterion for an adaptation is, "Does it capture the spirit of the original work?" since especially a two-hour film adaptation can't even try to stuff in all the content.
] I think I first read Emma at a time in my life when everything for me was dead serious and I culled from it only the darkest lessons.
] So, in my rambling way, what I guess I am saying is: my main adaptations yardstick is: is the spirit preserved; the caveat is: which spirit, through whose eyes?
Well done, Amy. Well done!
