If anyone were to push Emma Woodhouse into a less straitened age, why not the woman who captured Childish Gambino in a palm-tree polyblend?

While the story's sturdy, familiar structure remains resonant, this version never feels particularly inspired or revelatory, despite some lovely moments scattered throughout.

Austen's genius lay in turning one girl's interior world into the whole universe, and transforming the pettiest of social interactions into microcosms with global moral significance.

The movie is handsomely mounted and consistently engaging. Yes, the story is familiar but part of the charm is seeing how key scenes have been re-envisioned by the filmmakers.

There's a real energy to this adaptation.

April 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Emma. is deeply satisfying watch that, while lacking the contemporary feel of Amy Heckerling's Austen adaptation Clueless, is charming and lovely in its own right.
