    This movie Emma which is a bit more comical than others, is based on a classic novel by Jane Austen. Emma in this movie is the victim of pride, and proof of this is the extent to which this rubs of on her friend Harriet.

    In Austen’s time, as now, charity has been the indispensable virtue for both men and woman. It is a quality one should seek in companionship. The Bible reads in Colossians 3:12: “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” In the movie Knightley is a great example of one who understands this biblical trait and attribute of God, as he shows charity and kindness not just for Emma, his romantic interest, but for all women, including those not in his “station” and those who are older or unattractive, as well as for Emma’s aging father.

    This wasn’t our favorite version, but we loved seeing another adaption of this wonderful book by Jane.
