Just ordered this and looking forward to watching it since I read it is based on Jane Austen's "Emma." Paula Byrne in her new book, "The Genius of Jane Austen: Her Love of the Theatre and Why She Works in Hollywood," says it is a great adaptation of the novel, and an homage to "Emma." Byrne says, "The plot and the characters are faithfully preserved... It works brilliantly in its own right." Since Byrne's review of some of the dialogue made me laugh out loud, I knew it was time to see this film.
