She describes everything so lovely and lively, the set, the actors, the hole work.
She gives us a little look into her Private Live, and into the Private lives of the ather actors.
It's funny and for Emma Thompson Fans or Alan Rickman Fans it's a must.
The book consists of (i) a nine-page introduction by film producer Lindsay Doran, in which she describes the fifteen year process of getting to the stage when filming finally commences; (ii) Thompson's full screenplay; and (iii) Thompson's dairy entries during the production process, in which she was both star and screenwriter. As you would expect, the diary is erudite and witty, and extremely informative about the filmmaking process, probably more so than any book of film theory. Gemma Jones, who played Thompson's mother in the film, expresses the hope that the diary's contents are not going to be libellous. Alas, they are not. I particularly liked the entry for Sunday 18 June: "Watched `Blind Date' and picked my feet."
The book comes with many colour plates of the characters, stars, and settings in the film, as well as a list of locations and full credits.
N.B. It was mentioned in another review that this is the screenplay and diary combined, which it isn't! That item is also available on Amazon and I would highly recommend for anyone who loves the film or is interested in screenplay writing, as it's a classic adaptation. Famously hardly any of Austen's original words are used, and yet Thompson manages to create something that is completely faithful to the book.
Bridget Jones-like... but all true!
Juicy anecdotes about your favourite actors - plus a lot of insights on filmmaking in England.
Thanks, Emma Thompson, you're a lovely, lovely, witty girl.
