Andrew Davies, who adapted 'Middlemarch' and 'Pride and Prejudice' for the BBC, takes on Jane Austen's 'Emma' for ITV. Kate Beckinsale stars as the eponymous heroine who is intent on finding partners for everyone - but only if she thinks they are the right coupling. Her efforts create confusion, and the outspoken Mr Knightly pours scorn on her matchmaking - although he may have ulterior motives for doing so. A lavish costume drama from ITV, this adaptation was one of the highlights of the Autumn schedules in 1996. Synopsis Emma is a faithful, enchanting adaptation of Jane Austen's nineteenth-century tale of Emma Woodhouse--a clever young woman whose mischievous matchmaking schemes nearly end up jeopardising her own shot at romance. The film stars Kate Beckinsale.
