The movie Emma (2020) is the latest in what now amounts to dozens of filmed versions of Jane Austen’s iconic novel. First time director Autumn de Wilde lends her chops to the film, which features Anya Taylor-Joy, Callum Turner and Chloe Pirrie.
Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along.
The 1996 big screen version of Emma, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, may be the most famous.
