ELEVEN, Tonight, 9.30pm, M (1995)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

This teen clas­sic of the ‘ 90s, based on Jane Austen’s Emma, is a sharp and very funny satire. As prissy 16- year- old Cher, the de­lec­ta­ble Ali­cia Sil­ver­stone ( above) takes a grand tour of self- dis­cov­ery be­neath the shal­low sur­face of Bev­erly Hills su­per­fi­cial­ity and finds there’s more to life than fa­cials, BMWs and sil­i­cone. Cher pro­vides us with the per­fect an­ti­dote to the world of celebrity- ob­sessed vac­u­ous­ness, light­heart­edly analysing the false­hood that sur­rounds her, with wit, charm and the cutest smirk.
