Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • [New] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
    • Excerpt: The 2020 adaptation of Emma is a sheer delight, mixing costume lavishness with a hint of modernity in this tale of thwarted lovers who do find love despite themselves.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A witty and charming drama based on the Jane Austen novel.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Knightley’s introduction is altogether astonishing, the young man disheveled from a hard gallop stripped down completely before being redressed by his valet to walk to the Woodhouses’, a scene usually reserved for women and with far less nudity.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: You don’t drink a Mimosa for its nutrients but because it’s a sparkling gem of a cocktail. Emma is appreciated in the same way.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A sly, penetrating zing and a frisson of Insta-influencer horror — of the oppression of performative perfection against a marzipan backdrop — renders Austen’s fluff and nonsense deadly serious.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Director Autumn de Wilde reminds us Emma is the original Mean Girl; the ur-Regina George, queen bee of The Plastics. Yet, listening to the approving murmurs of the ladies in attendance at the screening, Emma can do no wrong.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Based on the use of color, floral arrangements, and utter decadence of it all, it’s as if the viewers are being treated to seeing an elaborate cake come to life.
