Jane Austen's beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this. 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.Written by

After the ball Mr Knightly is carrying his gloves while approaching Emma's carriage. He's still carrying them while running across the bridge. But as he continues running into the courtyard entrance of Emma's home and then stops, suddenly he's wearing the gloves, and then makes a point of removing them. See more »
Mr. Churchhill will soon return to Yorkshire. We must make the most of every opportunity until he does.
He's in Highbury only two weeks.
And yet he spent a whole day going to London just to get his hair cut. Sixteen miles, twice over. He's a trifling, silly fop.

The film's title has a period at the end, meant to signify the movie as a "period piece" set in the original era. See more »
Recently got a chance to watch this. I like the film with Gwyneth Paltrow, and absolutely love the BBC miniseries, so I was cautious watching this, especially with the several bad reviews. I don't know if it was because I went in with low expectations, but I was delighted by this movie! Admittedly if you don't know the story, it can move fast, but to be fair, the book is long and tedious, with a lot to fit in two hours, which is one of my problems with the 2008 movie. The visuals and fashions of this movie are beautiful, and Emma's character did show improvement unlike some of the comments I saw. This one definitely captured Jane Austen's humor, and you can be guaranteed to laugh a few times. The BBC mini-series is still my top rated, but the 2020 "Emma." is, in my opinion, a notch above the 2008 "Emma", but would definitely recommend all adaptations, especially the book.
