I also love "Pride and Prejudice" and "Emma," and am always interested to see that a new version of one of my favorites is being filmed. I read with great pleasure in "The New York Times" this week that a new version of "Emma" is about to be released. I started thinking about which one is my favorite, which is definitely a more erudite thought than I generally have.
My top favorite is probably "Persuasion," in a version filmed in 2000 with Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds, who I also adored in "Calendar Girls." I noted there was also a 2008 version, which I now desperately need to see.
Of course a close follower is "P and P," where Colin Firth -- one of my all time favorites -- plays Mr. Darcy.
And then, for just lots of fun...
I think I need to see this version of "Emma" again!
Please share your Jane Austen favorites. I think I know what I'll be watching on the next snowy afternoon.
