Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good You'd think we would be Emma-ed out by now. Not so. The new adaptation...is here, and it's wonderful! Charm is one of the hardest qualities to capture (or even explain), and there is genuine charm here. The performances are uniformly excellent, each actor bringing depth and shading to their characters...

NY Post Full Review
Good All Jane Austen's heroines are clever, but Anya Taylor-Joy brings an unusually sharp edge to her rendition of Emma Woodhouse in "Emma." ...loses a bit of focus when it comes to the story's supporting characters...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good Latest take on the writer's 1816 tale of a wily matchmaker knocks the stuffing out of typical costume-drama versions. Taylor-Joy is not out to make us like Emma, but to understand her -- a far more challenging proposition.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 70 moviegoers:
TEENS: A the females loved "Emma."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two females loved it, one enjoyed "Emma" very much and one felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are nearly identical. About half loved it with another20% of the ladies and 30% of the guys rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. The remaining 25%, or so, didn't care as much for this movie. Some actually disliked it rating it "poor."
