A fresh, definitive take on Jane Austen's classic comedy!

Don't be surprised if you missed this one in theaters! It was released in February 2020, just before many theaters locked down. But now you can discover it through CADL! Jane Austen's "Emma" has been adapted many times, and even inspired the film "Clueless"! But director Autumn de Wilde and screenwriter Eleanor Catton have fully justified another go-round. Anya Taylor-Joy is an ideal Emma, whose gentle egotism, emotional inexperience, and penchant for matchmaking make her one of Austen's most vivid protagonists. The supporting cast, including Johnny Flynn and Bill Nighy, is equally wonderful, as are the lavish sets and colorful costumes. Far from a stuffy, formal period piece, this is a vibrant and frequently hilarious diversion that is certain to bring a little cheer to any gray day!
