I think what impress me the most, especially after watching
Emma3, is the fact that JN managed to show pain and
disappointment in the picnic scene (lecturing Emma) and
the proposal scene (when Emma told him not to say it).
In Emma3, Mr. Knightley just seems angry and irritated.
Emotionally, I think JN conveys a lot more, hence I am

] ] ] ladies, ladies, i'm having a little difficulty following this thread. is jn really a great actor or do i just need to direct you to the drooling pond? must say I didn't exactly notice an acting phenomenon there, but i promise to look carefully next time i rent the flick.
] Greg -- I must agree that his techniqu is fabulous. His physical embodiment of this character is great. Do you completely disagree? I would be interested in a more objective view. A man that I saw the fiom with was disgusted by JN's too-good-looks, and couldn't appreciate his acting for that reason. Said he was "fine". Anyway, I was always in love with KNightly as a teenager, and my only reservation with Jeremy was that he ssemed too young and attractive. BUt then, Jane Austen did give his age as older than jeremy -- Is Knightly nit "16 years older" than Emma? 16 + 21 = 37. Jeremy was about 33 when he did that part So yeah, he was abit young and dishy. BUt he got it right, I think.
