Period and Historical
Spoilt Emma Woodhouse attempts to improve the lives and loves of her friends and acquaintances in this smart version of Jane Austen's early 19th-century novel. But during her clumsy attempts to play matchmaker, she doesn't realise that her emotions might be in for a bumpy ride too. While there is a moral lesson lurking in here, the real strength of both the book and the film is the sharp writing and creation of great characters.
This is a fascinating adaptation of Jane Austen's novel partly because of how very different it is to the book.
