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 (Taylor-Joy) 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.

In addition Taylor-Joy, the cast includes Bill Nighy (Their Finest), Miranda Hart (Spy), The Cure for Wellness‘ Mia Goth, The Crown‘s Josh O’Connor, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald‘s Callum Turner, Krypton‘s Rupert Graves, Game of Thrones‘ Gemma Whelan, In Darkness‘ Amber Anderson and Sex Education‘s Tanya Reynolds.

The Jane Austen novel was first published in 1815, a comedy of manners focusing on Emma Woodhouse, who can’t help herself from constantly meddling in the love affairs of others.

The film also marks the feature debut for director Autumn de Wilde, who is known primarily for her work in music videos for artists including Beck and Death Cab for Cutie. The Luminaries author Eleanor Catton will write the script. Catton is also serving as the executive producer on the small screen adaptation of her award-winning novel.
