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.
