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.
“Emma” only grows more assured as its namesake loses her balance, the pastel splendor of Christopher Blauvelt’s cinematography and the vocabulary-defying genius of costume designer Alexandra Byrne endowing this classic story with a new energy all its own. indieWire
This new version… whisks us back to basics. But it is done with such vigour, wit and charm that I defy anyone to roll their eyes at yet another music recital or formal dance overflowing with social nuance. Daily Mail (UK)
A largely faithful and unchallenging adaptation, beautifully staged and sharply acted by a cast adept at balancing wit and romance. Hollywood Reporter
Emma, with all her preening, gossipy self-love, is somehow the perfect Instagram-age heroine. Her actions in this adaptation and with Taylor-Joy’s characterisation are not those of a giddy romantic obsessive, but of an unapologetic, empowered woman. Times (UK)
