The story

In her last novel, 19th century author Jane Austen tells the story of Emma Woodhouse, a beautiful, rich and slightly spoiled young woman, whose favourite pastime is matchmaking. She had foreseen the happy union of her governess Miss Taylor with the jolly Mr. Weston, their wedding setting the scenery for the start of the story. With the encounter of Harriet Smith, Emma sees an opportunity to once again indulge in the pleasures of matchmaking. After all, Harriet deserves a handsome young man of good ascent, is it not? Blinded by pride and ignoring the warnings of Mr. Knightley, she pursues her plan… until she starts doubting: would Emma Woodhouse herself be falling in love?
