Gentle reader, this Guardian UK.Com article discusses the first episode of Emma 2009. Click here to read it. (See snippet below)
Each character's choice of cranial accessory came with a helpful clue as to the nature of her/his personality. Hence Emma's hats were floppy, hugely brimmed jobs either loosely knotted or bedecked with dangly, daringly untied ribbons (thus reflecting her free spirit and a certain laxness in the attention-to-common-sense department). Elsewhere: Miss Bates's bonce bore a succession of unyielding Regency coal scuttles (creature of habit + sod all imagination), Harriet's green silk bonnet was so saggy, it appeared her brains had tried to escape from the back of her skull during a particularly tricky thought about buns or something (idiocy), while Knightley's vast stovepipe/top hat contraption succeeded in dominating his every scene (implication: he has an erection. Hopefully).
