Anya Taylor-Joy brings to life Jane Austen’s favorite character in Autumn de Wilde’s delectable, candy-colored new film EMMA. From her perch in the village of Highbridge, the “handsome, clever, and rich” heroine plays matchmaker to all around her. Unfortunately, the one heart she can never quite understand is her own, especially as it relates to Mr. Knightley (Johnny Flynn). Sporting an utterly entertaining cast that includes, Bill Nighy, Mia Goth, Josh O’Connor, Callum Turner, Miranda Hart, and Rupert Graves, this “insanely pretty version of the Jane Austen novel,” notes The Seattle Times, “adds up to a movie filled with that simple yet rare thing: pure pleasure.”
With current circumstances keeping more and more people at home, pleasure is something in high demand. We are pleased—as it appears many others are, too—to be able to stream EMMA. at home, on demand today. For so many people—and for so many different reasons—EMMA. is the film we need right now.
For all of us going through these troubling times.
For people who’ve loved it and want to see it again.
For anyone who knows great cinema, like Edgar Wright.
For those who need a two-hour escape.
For those who can no longer visit movie theaters.
For those who just need a reassuring break from the craziness.
For anyone doing their part to keep us all safe.
