Emma. ★★★★

Besides Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice, this might be my favorite Austen adaptation. It has an almost Wes Anderson level of precision that hilariously highlights the superficiality of Regency England. It’s definitely heavy on the satirical side, but I enjoyed it for that reason. The performances, costumes, sets, music, cinematography, and typography all create a light, fluffy confection that I look forward to enjoying again.
Bill Nighy is a legend.
