Emma

Emma Woodhouse (Romola Garai) seems to be perfectly content, to have a loving father for whom she cares, friends, and a home. But Emma has a terrible habit, matchmaking. Get the Emma DVD Box Set from Shopville!

Although Jane Austen's Emma has been adapted for the screen many times before, including for an American version starring Gwyneth Paltrow, this four-part miniseries is the version to begin with. The story of Miss Woodhouse, a matchmaker and meddler whose wit and misdirection need to be carefully acted to match the novel's complex character, is perfectly expressed through Romola Garai's portrayal.

Throughout the retelling of this comedic romantic drama, Garai not only conveys Emma's strong-willed sensibility but also manages to update Emma for modern audiences without relinquishing the traditional manners and tastes that Austen fans love in her 1815 historical tale. Each episode, here, opens with a seasonal shot of Hartfield, the estate Emma rules while caring for her loyal and kind but protective father (Michael Gambon)

Having lost her mother early, Emma feels a bond with two other unfortunate children in Highbury, Frank Churchill (Rupert Evans) and Jane Fairfax (Laura Pyper), whom Emma befriends as they return home from boarding schools abroad.

Emma's deadly combination of pure intentions and naivety create no small amount of trouble to her friend Harriet, who rejects an appropriate marriage proposal at the behest of Emma, who insists she will be paired with Mr. Elton, a handsome gentleman much higher on the social scale.
