A modernized adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel, “Emma.” follows the lavish lifestyle of a young matchmaker who meddles in the lives of her friends and family. Set in Regency-era England, the movie is a good reminder of how detrimental selfishness or a lack of self-awareness can be; which is portrayed through the actions of the titular character. Although a lighthearted movie, “Emma.” also emphasizes the importance of healthy friendships, one that is sincere and accepting through a story filled with heartbreak and vulnerability.
