Drama Comedy


Emma, a high society amateur matchmaker in Victorian England, begins her own journey in finding love.

This is a successful adaptation of a classic novel. It embraces a modern perspective to unpack themes of trust, relationships, the psychology of influence, and the vulnerabilities of affection. Highly privileged characters expose the fruits of ultra-rich boredom: gossip and the cruelty of class systems. Careful, sparing use of clever dialogue provides nuanced performances within exciting scenes. Unexpected, balanced, cheeky, and honest. My affections are engaged.
