Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeremy Northam in Emma (1996), d. Douglas McGrath

I really like how Emma Approved did the “Badly done, Emma” scene. It was cleverly written and very well acted.

But we all know who owns that scene: Jeremy Phillip Northam.

His Mr Knightley is angry and disappointed and heart-broken that the woman he’s just begun to realize he’s in love with should be behaving so horribly. That second “Badly done” gets me every time.
