I just saw Emma2 on video. I am a huge Austen fan, and LOVED this movie to death. I rented it thinking -- "oh yea, sure, Gwyneth Paltrow as Emma -- horrible casting!" -- But I was very pleasantly surprised -- she was, in fact, a perfect Emma in my view. Jeremy Northam was also terrific (so romantic!!) I have always loved Austen for her wit, social satire, and, of course, the romance. This movie had a perfect script/adaptation of the novel, perfect casting, and perfect direction.
