Romola Garai stars as matchmaker Emma Woodhouse in this BBC adaptation of Jane Austen's classic comic novel. Despite the protestations of Mr. Knightly (Jonny Lee Miller) for her not to become involved, Emma's meddling has unforeseen effects when she persuades her young friend Harriet Smith (Louise Dylan) to reject the advances of a local farmer in favour of the dashingly eligible Mr Elton (Blake Ritson).

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.  Emma Woodhouse, beautiful, clever, and rich, has very little to concern her. When her governess marries advantageously, Emma congratulates herself on her great success as a matchmaker. So, when she meets the pretty, naive, and socially inferior Harriet, Emma is ready to practise her skills again - ignoring warnings of the harm she could cause from friend and neighbour, Mr Knightley. As she sets about meddling with the affairs of the village of Highbury, Emma carves a trail of confusion, disappointment and disaster that risks Harriet’s happiness, and much to her surprise, her own happiness too. This fresh, funny, and perceptive adaptation by Sandy Welch, acclaimed writer of North and South, Jane Eyre, and Our Mutual Friend, brings Jane Austen’s comic masterpiece about village life, love, and self awareness to life with a stellar cast. As our heroine embarks on a journey that challenges her naivety and her social preconceptions it leads her to realise that she has become so focused on the lives of others that she has failed to see what’s in front of her own eyes..
