"You’ll laugh, cry, cringe and covet the hats and bedspreads" – Spectactor.
"★★★★ – A frivolous, colourful, and quirky new take on Jane Austen’s classic anti-heroine" – Mirror.
Jane Austen’s beloved comedy is reimagined in this delicious new satire of social class from debut director Autumn de Wilde. Fancying herself a matchmaker, young society woman Emma decides to meddle in the affairs of her friend and family, but the path to true love never did run smooth.
Blissfully playful and enjoyable, Emma recalls to mind recent Austen adaptation Love & Friendship, has a superb supporting cast including Josh O’Connor (God’s Own Country) and Johnny Flynn (Beast, Vanity Fair) and a wonderful rumpled turn from Bill Nighy as Emma’s long-suffering father.
Dir: Autumn de Wilde
Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Nighy
