Return to Now Playing

Miss Emma Woodhouse is sophisticated, clever, rich and beautiful - and just a little bit spoiled. After her governess Miss Taylor marries kind Widower Mr. Weston, she is left to her own devices and the company of her hypochondriac father in the country estate of Hartfield. Since she fancies herself a matchmaker, a quality defied by old family friend George Knightley, she decides to provide the charming young vicar Mr. Elton with a wife. Things don't go so well after that, in this 1996 adaption of the oft-filmed Jane Austen novel.
