I adore this movie, so I was thrilled to find this book at a library book sale (For fifty cents, no less!). I then surprised myself by sitting down and reading the entire shooting script - it mostly made me want to watch the movie again, but I enjoyed it.

What I really enjoyed, however, were Emma Thompson's shooting diaries. She's witty, she's honest, she's endearing, and she gives us those behind-the-scenes bits of gossip that we all love. (She even discusses Hugh Grant's arrest, which apparently happened after he had finished his part in the film. Heh.) I want to be her when I grow up. :)
