Like many I am a fan of Jane Austen. I am always ready to watch a new film version of any of her books. Most of the time I hate the newest film version the first time I watch it because I am such a fan of another version. (Except in the case of the new Pride & Prejudice with Keira Knightely.) Then after watching it a second time, I can give my honest opinion and decide if the new version is my new favorite.Masterpiece they have been showing the newest version of Emma. (The screenplay is done by the same person who did the latest Jane Eyre.) I hated it for about the first 20 minutes. However, after watching Romola Garai play Emma I can say that I LOVE this version. (I loved Romola Garai in Amazing Grace.) I think the character interpretation overall is better than any previous version. I love Mr Knightely and he does a great job of putting Emma in her place. Plus Dumbledore plays Mr. Woodhouse!
You can enter to win Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and Persuasion here. I love all three of these versions. If you missed it on PBS, you can watch it online.
