In 1800s England, a well-meaning but selfish young woman meddles in the love lives of her friends.
User Reviews: If you doubt the need for another Austen, let this gorgeous film change your mind. Instead of ignoring the offers made to the period film genre by great films like ‘Anna Karenina’ and ‘The Favourite’, ‘Emma.’ runs with them, finding a new language for approaching the great works of one of the great writers, realising her wit and humour in new and exciting ways while honouring the deep intelligence and generosity within them. I spent the entirety of Autumn de Wilde’s wonderful film with the dumbest smile on my face, mixed with peals of laughter and gushing tears of joy. This is how we must approach the great classics – a celebration of what we love about them and an engagement with how they can speak to us here and now. That’s how and why they can continue to matter so much.rn- Daniel LamminrnrnRead Daniel’s full article…rnmaketheswitch.au/article/review-emma-a-dazzling-new-adaptation-of-jane-austens-classic
