Jane Austen novels are pure cannon fodder when it comes to Television. Loved by millions worldwide and Autumn de Wilde will bring us another rendition of Emma.
The much beloved comedy is an satire of social class and of course growing up. Anya Taylor-Joy is one actress we’ve seen her grow up through her films. From her time in Robert Eggers The VVitch to Split, now she’ll be Emma Woodhouse.
I may not be a fan or an expert on all thing Austen, this fan favourite rarely made it to the big screen. The 1996 Gwyneth Paltrow version was the last one. There’s also the modern retelling Clueless, starring Alicia Silverstone.
Fans don’t need to know about the story’s plot. For those unfamiliar to the story originally published in 1815, Emma is an restless Queen Bee. A young woman without rivals in a small sleepy town. Following her misguided matches and romantic missteps on the path to love.
Universal Pictures has released the first Trailer. A trailer that teases the film’s tone, and comedy style. With Bill Nighy in the cast this maybe a delight to watch…
