Emma (2009)

Spoilers in Post:

Where: Amazon Prime

Rating: N/A

Year: 2009

Release Type: Television

Plot: A sheltered young woman learns about life and love after a series of assumptions and mistakes.

Scoring Notes: generally a +5 is the highest I will give a component. A -5 is the lowest. If it goes beyond that, then you know I am quite serious


+10 for Romola Garai. I absolutely adore her in this role and I really truly don’t understand why she hasn’t graced ours screens more in the last 10 years.

+5 for Jonny Lee Miller. Cause Jonny Lee Miller. Adorable. Sweet. Mr Knightley. *swoon*

+5 for Michael Gambon

+5 for Blake Riston. Again, why hasn’t he graced our screens more?

Production (Writing/Directing/Soundtrack, etc…):

+20 for a well directed mini-series. I legit sat and re-watched all 4 episodes at once even though I knew how the story ends.


+10 because I’d rewatch. Did I mention I love this version? I do. I really do.

+5 for Miss Bates. The poor woman deserves some love. This time around her character really struck me. Between carrying for an invalid mother and having no family of her own; she just broke my heart.

Total Score: 60
