The review of this Movie prepared by Louriz R. Manuel

This movie is basicaly about a girl named Emma, who is trying to grow up and act as a matchmaker. Little does she know about her own feelings and how to handle them. I think that this is a wonderful movie!

Emma is a wealthy only child who plays matchmaker in nineteenth century England. She sets up a poor, unknown girl three times until she realizes how good intentions can go awry and the pain of unreciprocated love.
The review of this Movie prepared by Brittney

Jane Austen's timeless classic to silver screen. This adaptation compressed the lengthy novel into a concise,witty and upbeat narrative satire. Without losing the essence of the oringal.Emma Woodhouse tried to matchmake friends around her.
