Jane Austen's comedy of manners Emma gets a valley girl update with Alicia Silverstone as Cher, a so-not-an-airhead who struggles with love and life at high school in this classic teen comedy. Cher is a spoilt only child living in a Beverly Hills mansion who finds much to improve in the lives and relationships of the people who surround her- from her impatient businessman father to her pet project, new girl at school Tai. Despite her total confidence in knowing what's best for others, Cher lacks self-awareness when it comes to her own heart. While working as a sharp parody of the likes of hugely popular 90s TV show Beverly Hills 90210, Clueless is also a warm and witty comedy full of sympathetic characters, endlessly quotable dialogue and iconic fashion.
A film guide that looks at Clueless (1995), exploring its key topics and themes through informal discussion.
