    A wonderful movie with beautiful scenery and dresses and a beautiful love story. One to watch over and over... My favorite line: "And now, for the cream."

    Yet in its high spirits and wicked good humor, Emma is a delightful film--second only to "Persuasion" among the modern Austen movies, and funnier, if not so insightful.

    Emma lacks the depth of passion present in the other Austen films, but, in large part because it's trying for something lighter and breezier, it's still fun.

    McGrath's script is faithful: fierce when it needs to be and devilishly funny.
