A great re­work­ing of

Jane Austen’s Emma, re­lo­cated to Bev­erly Hills with shal­low but sweet Cher (Ali­cia Sil­ver­stone) match­mak­ing every­body around her, but hav­ing no luck when it comes to her­self. It is a per­cep­tive par­ody that hits ev­ery note it sets out to. Di­rec­tor and writer Amy Heck­er­ling has cap­tured the novel’s essence bril­liantly, but she has done it with a com­bi­na­tion of wit and teenage apho­risms.
