An all-star cast, including Golden Globe-nominated Romola Garai, brings Jane Austen's comic masterpiece to life in this fresh, funny and perceptive adaptation. Emma Woodhouse is beautiful, clever and rich. She delights in the conviction that she's the perfect matchmaker. But she's playing a dangerous game as she persuades her new friend, the young, pretty and socially inferior Harriet, to reject an advantageous marriage proposal to a local farmer in favour of dashing Mr Elton. So begins a story which challenges Emma's naivety, her social preconceptions and her own relationships.
