The director, being an artist by trade, has taken this latest version of the beloved story of Emma. and made a movie that is an art piece itself. Austin fans will know that Emma is, well, a spoiled brat. She is arrogant, selfish and naive but good hearted as anyone would expect of a twenty year old rich young woman of Jane Austen's time. The director has taken care to make sure that the mood of the first half of this film mirrors that of the title character. All the rooms, interactions and conversation feel rather synthetic and great detail has been put into the superficial. The result is quite spectacular.
As the film progresses, so too does the heroine who becomes continuously less "unfeeling" through very hard lessons and the criticism of course of Mr. Knightly. The change is so gradual to the mood of the film that you will not notice it has happened. You will simply find yourself in love with the film around the same time that you find that Emma is a red blooded human like us all.
