Synopsis


Emma
Based on the novel by Jane Austen (who in the '90s seemed to be in the running alongside William Shakespeare and Stephen King for the honors of most adapted author in Hollywood), this period romantic comedy stars Gwyneth Paltrow as Emma Woodhouse, a young woman who imagines herself an authority on matters of the heart. With the best of intentions, Emma plays matchmaker for her friends, most notably her friend Harriet (Toni Collette), who Emma links up with the Reverend Elton (Alan Cumming), and her governess, (Greta Scacchi), who she introduces to her future husband, Mr. Weston (James Cosmo). However, Emma is not nearly as good at playing Cupid as she likes to imagine, and she spends so much time trying to solve everyone else's romantic problems that it takes her quite some time to realize that she's fallen in love with Mr. Knightly (Jeremy Northam). A television miniseries based on Austen's book appeared a year later, while a year prior to Emma, the story appeared in modernized form in the popular teen comedy Clueless. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Jane Austen's 'Emma', played by the lovely Gwyneth Paltrow as the self-made, insistent know-it-all, though well-intentioned matchmaker, is back. She not only makes poor choices in her attempts to promote their 'ideal mates' to her friends and companions but totally cannot see the opportunity for happiness that presents itself right in front of her own 'nosey' nose. A fun movie, re-made in modern times with the great romantic story-telling of Jane Austen.

    Emma thinks she knows best who would be the perfect match for her friends and recommends who their life's companion should be.... but she turns out to be totally wrong in every one of her recommendations, including her inability to recognize her own 'best companion', toward whom she is totally blind.

    My sister and I read the book, then watched the movie. It is the best movie adaptation I've ever seen! It was funny, and the actors perfectly captured the characters. Of course, they had to leave some things out, but my sister and I loved it!
