Come on young ladies. Supper’s over, time to start dancing again!
I am ready Sir!
Miller’s Knightley is the perfect foil to Garai’s feisty Emma; he is a gentle soul, almost unassuming, yet he manages to bring out the subtle humour of the character. There is an essential stillness to Miller, which means Knightley’s internal struggle with his feelings for Emma is beautifully nuanced through the tiniest of movements, expressions or inflections of his voice.

top 4 literature men I would date in a heartbeat
25 ships: 7. Emma Woodhouse & George Knightley
Till now that she was threatened with its loss, Emma had never known how much of her happiness depended on being first with Mr. Knightley, first in interest and affection.
I adore JLM’s performace as Mr Knightley. It was so achingly good. His face, his expressions, those eyes! He did the character justice.
27. Favorite quote from the films
"Mmm. Yes. Now."
It may not be my favorite, but I do like it quite a lot. JLM delivers that line wonderfully.
22. Favorite female Austen casting decision
Romala Garai as Emma. She does a great job of being annoying, meddling, and snobbish - yet shows the caring and genuine side of Emma too. She manages to show the full spectrum and transformation of the character.
21. Favorite Jane Austen related photo
Frank Churchill from Emma (2009). I think this photo rather represents everything I love about Jane Austen. The clothing of the period piece, the letter writing, the sets and houses, and of course the pretty men.
