This adaptation of the Jane Austen novel focuses on Emma, a meddling but well-meaning 21-year-old, who LOVES to play matchmaker.
She’s currently obsessed with finding the perfect man for her friend Harriet. But what appears to be a simple task becomes a nightmare, as Emma’s machinations set off a chain reaction of misunderstandings between a number of people. Things only worsen when Emma attempts to set things straight.
Emma may — or may not — succeed in finding a mate for her pal. But what’s more important is that Emma will learn a few things about herself in the process.
