Director: Autumn de Wilde
Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of EMMA. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realize the love that has been there all along.
Handsome, clever and rich, 21-year-old Emma Woodhouse (Anya Taylor-Joy) is a restless “queen bee” who has lived all her life in the sleepy English village of Highbury with very little to distress or vex her. When our story begins, Emma has recently discovered the thrill of matchmaking. She has succeeded in orchestrating a marriage between her governess and the kind widower, Mr. Weston.
