Review In A Nutshell:
It was like beauty lathered upon beauty; enticing storytelling spread across a luscious landscape. It is only February and we already have a potential competitor for this year’s costume and production design awards race. Emma. is a brimming social satire, while also being a character study. It strikes a wonderful balance of humour and drama that earns its convictions while keeping things light and charming. Unlike the titular character, Autumn de Wilde’s craftsmanship strays from the potential indulgence and vanity of her narrative, thus leaving us with what I could only describe as one of the early hits of the year.
