"One of the 50 Coolest Websites...they simply tell it like it is" - TIME

Emma | 1996 | PG | – 0.1.1
Based on Jane Austen’s novel, a wealthy young woman spends her time being a matchmaker and counseling her lovelorn friend, often with ill-fated results. With Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeremy Northam, Toni Collette, Ewan McGregor, Greta Scacchi, James Cosmo, Alan Cumming, Denys Hawthorne, Sophie Thompson, Polly Walker, Kathleen Byron, Phyllida Law, Juliet Stevenson, Edward Woodall, Brian Capron, Karen Westwood, Rebecca Craig, Angela Down and John Franklyn-Robbins. [2:01]

SEX/NUDITY 0 – None.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 – A group of people push a woman to the ground while trying to steal her purse. It’s implied a woman hits a dog with an arrow while practicing archery (we hear the dog yelp).

LANGUAGE 1 – A couple of mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS – 19th Century London, affluence vs. poverty, snobbery, deception, matchmaking, falling in love.

MESSAGE – Often the best matches happen naturally. Don’t meddle in others lives, and don’t let others meddle in yours.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
