Dancing Jane Austen

Emma and Mr Knightley. Romola Garai looks ravishing. Even the usually bland Jonny Lee Miller is not so bad in this scene.

Elinor and Robert Ferrars. This dance looks fun! But not for Elinor, since she’s dancing with the wrong brother.

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, the brilliant version.

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, the crappy version. Could these two sound MORE bored and uninterested? I don’t think so. Where’s the passion, the anger, the biting sarcasm? There’s more to showing anger than flaring your nostrils and opening your eyes very, very wide, guys.
