“The first trailer for the upcoming Emma adaptation dropped today, and I have thoughts! If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it here:
” From Focus Features On YouTube:
Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of EMMA. 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. Directed by Autumn de Wilde. Written by Eleanor Catton. Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Johnny Flynn, Bill Nighy, Mia Goth, Miranda Hart, Josh O’Connor, Callum Turner, Rupert Graves, Gemma Whelan, Amber Anderson, Tanya Reynolds, and Connor Swindells. “
“So right off the bat, spot-on casting of Miss Bates. Miranda Hart, 100%, absolutely, done and done.
I also love the casting of Bill Nighy as Mr. Woodhouse. I do wonder if he’s a little too sardonic and spry for Emma’s hypochondriac, never-gets-the-joke dad. But I’m pretty optimistic.”””
” I am pretty excited for this film. I’ve loved every Emma adaptation that’s been made in the past 25 years, especially Clueless, and even Emma Approved, all for different reasons. And I’m prepared to love this one. I’m very ready to be pleased, much like the Misses Bertram. “
