My Review of ‘Emma.’

I don’t usually watch these type of movies. When the newest adaptation of Little Women was all the rave last year I looked the other way. And the closest movie I could say I’ve ever seen to this type of posh British love-story movie is Barry Lyndon which was a nearly three-hour long epic rather than a cute, comedic story.

However, yesterday I decided to watch Emma. because the film looked pretty on commercials and I like Anya Taylor-Joy enough to not be annoyed watching her in such a role. To be honest, I had no idea what the story was about but it wasn’t long before the gorgeous frames and cheeky humor reeled me in.

Emma. is no masterpiece but it sure was an entertaining two hours of my time as my sister and I were transported to early 19th-century England where we listened to the gossip of the lords and the ladies and watched riveted as the petty drama ensued.

By the end, I was pleasantly surprised and I was glad I watched it. Maybe now, if I get the chance, I’ll watch Little Women.

I’m giving it 93 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
