"Pulls off a wonderful oxymoron: a substantial confection - I delighted in nearly every minute of it." —Baltimore Magazine

 "Vivacious." —Globe and Mail

Jane Austen's beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless "queen bee" without rivals in her sleepy little English town. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realize the love that has been there all along.
