A fiercely funny four-hour adaptation of Jane Austen's delightful love story stars Romola Garai ("Atonement") as a young woman whose attempts to play Cupid go disastrously awry. Rich, beautiful and hopelessly self-deluded, Emma Woodhouse can't help meddling in the romantic life of others while neglecting her own. Jonny Lee Miller ("Endgame," "Eli Stone") stars as Emma's stalwart friend, Mr. Knightley, with Michael Gambon ("Cranford," "Harry Potter") as her doom-obsessed father.
