Emma. ★★★

im typically a fan of romantic period dramas but this just lacked flavour, nothing about this remake is particularly evolutionary although  that doesnt mean there wasnt anything memorable. i want to bring the costuming, set design and locations, in particular, to attention. its all rather detailed and fascinating to look at, very beautiful indeed and the only reason it got a decent rating. i must also admit i did have a hard time following along, i got exceedingly bored of the story and for a fluent english speaker, could barely understand the era style dialogue. even more so with the majority of exchanges being in hushed tones and heavy accents, my three braincells were in overdrive the entire time. the ending was cute tho
