The best Emma yet.
Reviewed in Australia on 27 June 2020
We watched the latest version of Emma and we are still amused by Bill Nighy's performance as Mr Woodhouse. He is perfect, adding enough humour and light relief without overdoing the role and overshadowing the other characters. Gaby is in love with Mr Knightly. Mr Elton reminded me of a foolish version of Euria Heap. Slimy without the sinister. Emma takes you from dislike to feeling sorry for her, to liking her and being pleased for her. We thoroughly recommend it. A few key elements were missing suggesting it could have been half an hour longer. The music was enjoyable to, featuring Maddy Prior and others, but perhaps an unnecessary distraction.
