Who would have thought the plot of Jane Austen’s novel Emma would make the tran­si­tion to the big screen, but with a 1990s set­ting? It’s out with the pe­riod cos­tumes and in with the bright lights of Bev­erly Hills as Ali­cia Sil­ver­stone takes the lead. She plays spoiled brat Cher, a pam­pered, up­per-class teen who’s more in­ter­ested in wear­ing the right clothes than get­ting good grades at high school. How­ever, she’s not as self­ish as you may think, and is more than happy to step in and help those less for­tu­nate than her – es­pe­cially when it comes to match­mak­ing.
