Emma (1996)

Emma (1996) - In rural 1800s England things go bad for a young matchmaker after she finds a man for another woman.

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. This book/movie is very light-hearted, though not as witty as some of Austen's other works. Henry Tilney, however is a much more agreeable person than, dare I say it, Mr. Darcy? Also, Tilney understands muslin. : )

Emma, the miniseries, with Romola Garai. I do like this better than the Paltrow version, but not as much as I do with the Beckinsale.

In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you. - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
