Does every generation of moviegoers get the Emma it deserves? If so, we are in a lucky moment. The latest Emma (played perfectly by Anya Taylor-Joy), is a millennial – in the best possible sense. As Jane Austen wrote, she’s handsome, clever and rich, but also restless, underemployed and skeptical of love. It’s a modern interpretation but also a timeless one. Emma has a rare privilege: She is already the mistress of her own house. With no need to marry and little to do, she turns her attention to making matches for acquaintances. But with Harriet Smith (Mia Goth), a student without family or means, Emma’s desire for amusement gets in the way of her friend’s needs. Eventually she learns that money and love aren’t matters with which to trifle.
Emma doesn’t need foils. She’s her own foil. And despite the inevitable, tidy happy ending, she’s also her own salvation.-The Globe and Mail
