Yay--who else voted for Beckinsale with me? It includes the Word Game! And a much more meek, ignorant, and ridiculous Harriet (which is how I always read her). Lovely scenery. A much more understandable and less likeable Emma. Austen's favorite heroine was Emma--and readers were not meant to love everything about her! She was supposed to get on your nerves. Paltrow Emma was just too funny to laugh at that my annoyance was more a roll of the eyes instead of a smack the TV screen. But nothing--not one thing--can beat Jeremy Northam. Oh my. We'll just end it there.
