Emma. (2020)

emma_xxlg

In 1800s England, a well meaning but selfish young woman meddles in the love lives of her friends. (IMDb)
A perfectly put-together period. piece, slickly subtle yet sizzling in its sensuality (those looks shared at the dance!) and humour (chatty Miss Bates is an obvious highlight, but spineless Mr. Elton is another) as wonderful cinematography, performances, and script unravel the story’s web of relationships centered on the beguiling Emma. With all the pomp and privilege on display though (not to mention the tidy pairing-off in the end), a little more bite and blood would’ve been welcome.
7.5/10 (Really Good)

  1. I liked this movie. Its a bit quirky and has a little bit of oddball humor (like The Favourite) that sometimes I don’t get, but the acting was good and the costumes were lavishing (as well as the set pieces).
