[TD valign="top"] Universal City, California, April 21, 2020 – Jane Austen’s nineteenth-century comedy on misguided matchmaking and romantic mishaps gets a refreshing update in the heartwarming and witty EMMA. , available on Digital May 5, 2020 and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on May 19, 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed as “gorgeous, modern and authentic” (Stephanie Zacharek, Time ), the wickedly funny film chronicles the privileged but well-meaning young Emma Woodhouse ( The Witch and Thoroughbreds’ Anya Taylor-Joy). A vibrant visual treat, the Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh® EMMA. , is “an unexpectedly timely sparkling romance” (Harriet Fitch Little, VOGUE), and features exclusive, never-before-seen bonus content including deleted scenes, gag reel, and behind-the-scene featurettes with the cast and crew whisking audiences away to the world of our mischievous heroine and the everlasting story of self discovery.

Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of EMMA. . Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse (Taylor-Joy) is a restless “queen bee” without rivals in her sleepy little English town. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realize the love that has been there all along.

Autumn de Wilde’s feature debut EMMA. is “irresistible” (Justin Chang, NPR ) and “the best adaptation yet” (Matt Goldberg, Collider ), featuring a fresh and razor-sharp screenplay by Man Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton (“The Luminaries”) that stays true to Austen’s endearing novel and brings to life the English Countryside in 1815. With an exceptional ensemble cast lead by Taylor-Joy EMMA. is rounded out by Johnny Flynn ( Beast ), Bill Nighy ( Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Series), Mia Goth ( Suspiria ), Josh O’ Connor (“The Crown”), Miranda Hart ( Spy, “Call the Midwife”), Callum Turner ( Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, “War & Peace”), Tanya Reynolds (“Sex Education”), Connor Swindells (“Sex Education”), Rupert Graves (“Sherlock,” A Room with a View ) and Gemma Whelan (“Game of Thrones”). Accompanied by a joyous and energetic score by composer Isobel Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) and David Schweitzer, EMMA. is a stunning new vision of the groundbreaking literary classic on love and redemption. The theatrical version of the film is currently available for early viewing on a wide variety of popular on-demand services as a premium rental offering.

I saw this film on the big screen the weekend before everything went into lockdown here in Canada. It's a sumptuous feast for the eyes and for that reason I'll buy the 4K digital, but I didn't care for Anya Taylor-Joy as the title character. I realize that it was Austen's intention that the character not be likable when she wrote the novel, but I've found something endearing about every other Emma I've seen. My favourite is still the 2009 BBC mini-series starring Romola Garai... she was fabulous in the role.

I might rent this once the disc comes out and regular priced rentals go into effect. I wouldn't mind seeing it but don't want to pay $20 for a rental that they are currently charging.
