No one needs another adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma--we already had a perfectly acceptable one headed up by Gwyneth Paltrow in 1996, a BBC miniseries in 2009 starring Romola Garai, and the absolutely joyful Valley Girl spin on the story in 1995’s Clueless. Emma. 2020 is actually the fourth theatrical version of the story while there are eight TV adaptations in total. But where’s the harm? It’s a good book. This latest, the feature directorial debut from Autumn de Wilde, has everything you might expect from a straight Austen transfer: lovely countryside, gorgeous dresses, majestic stately homes, a lavish dance, and a class divide. But while the production design, costume, hair, and makeup and overall world-building is meticulous and impressive, there’s something lacking in this frothy comedy romance. And that’s heart. Anya Taylor-Joy plays the titular character Emma - “Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich…” as the book begins. It might as well have continued “and also a bit of a dick” in this adaptation, which challenges the viewer to find much redeeming in its heroine. Emma is 21, resolutely single and insufferably smug. Befriending a young woman named Harriet Smith (Mia Goth), whose parentage is unknown, Emma resolves to match her protege with the most eligible man she can find. In her mind, that’s the sleazy Mr. Elton (Josh O'Connor - from God’s Own Country giving good gurning face) while rejecting earthier Robert Martin (Sex Education’s Connor Swindells delivering an equally stoic, hang dog performance with even fewer lines), who supposedly loves Harriet. Meanwhile Emma’s own interest is piqued by the dashing but caddish Mr. Churchill (Callum Turner) whose attentions she vies for with poor but accomplished Jane Fairfax (Amber Anderson), overlooking the far more noble suitor George Knightley (Johnny Flynn).
