The latest lavish screen adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic Regency novel in which the heroine, Emma Woodhouse, is the “handsome, clever and rich” daughter of a doting father and amuses herself by match-making, often with unpredictable and hilarious results. This elegantly produced, star-studded and comedic film is a delight!
UK 2020 – Directed by Autumn de Wilde with Anya Taylor-Joy, Johnny Flynn, Bill Nighy, Miranda Hart – 125 min
