Another brilliant Jane Austen adaption

I lost my heart to yet another fictional character, Mr. Knightley. I have seen three adaptions of Emma this far, the latest starring Jonny Lee Miller and Romola Garai in the leading roles. This is definitely my favourite. This is possibly my favourite adaption of Jane Austen`s novels. Or period novels all together.

The first two parts were brilliant indeed. But I was hopelessly lost half way through the third episode, when Mr. Knightley said "Will you dance, dear Emma?" The dancing scene is one of the best/cutest scenes I have ever seen. The way he looked at her, my heart melted. And from that moment I was mesmerized. The ending of course being the icing on the cake.

The characters were perfect. Blake Ritson made so funny Mr. Elton not to mention Rupert Evans, Louise Dylan, Michael Gambon, Tamsin Greig and all the others. And Romola was so lively, it was like I could see her thoughts. Though Jonny Lee Miller was gorgeous and the reason my heart is lost.

So, hoping to find a guy who would look at me like he looked at her, my Mr. Knightley :)
