Tuesday Talks! The Reverse Edition

Today is a very special Tuesday Talks! You get to ask about a book, movie, or music that you would like to know more about, and others can come by your blog and give their opinion!

For me today, I would like to know if anyone can recommend a movie version of "Emma" by Jane Austen.

Last weekend, my family enjoyed watching the A and E movie version of "Pride and Prejudice" together. We really liked it, and we also like the "Pride and Prejudice" movie with Kiera Knightley.

We were not as impressed with the "Sense and Sensibility" by Emma Thompson however, so if you have a good recommendation for another version, I would love to hear that too! :)

Now, it's your turn! Help us make "Tuesday Talks" a success!! Leave your link below!

The A&E version of 'Emma' starring Kate Beckinsale is my favorite. It's actually going to be on the PBS series Masterpiece Theatre on March 23, I believe. There's another version, a feature film starring Gwyneth Paltrow, that is pretty good too, but I like the A&E one the best.

Thanks! I will have to check that one out! We love the Jane Austen around here! :)

The A&E version is my favorite "Emma" as well! Courtney, I'd be glad to let you borrow my DVD if you'd like!

Dear Courtney,

I would like to recomend the version of Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow. My family much prefers it to the A&E version.

If you love Jane Austen then the original BBC productions, which they did in late 70's and early 80's would be the choice No.1. They are absolutely fabulous, true to character, almost word for word- you could follow them with a book;);)and the heroines of the stories have none of the modern attitude one finds in the most recent productions. You are literally transported in time!
I have the whole set of them and my favorite is Emma, although I also like Persuasion- it is a more mature work, it seems. I like the sentiment of the true feelings enduring despite elapsed time and separation.
best luck,
(you can try getting them at bbc america- the jane austen collection, or maybe the local library has them?)

Thanks Viola! I think this is the very set that I am getting at the library this week. Thanks for the recommendation!
