In England in the 1800s, Emma Woodhouse has beauty, wealth and a loving family - so naturally she's desperate for something to do. However, when she assigns herself the task of matchmaking her new friend, she finds that her best-laid plans can sometimes go horribly wrong...
Coming from a novice director, the film is not as impressive as Sense And Sensibility, but as a light-hearted and energetic comedy of who-loves-who? and small upsets, this works well - and it boasts Paltrow's star-making turn.
