Emma. ★★★½

My wife tells me that director, Autumn de Wilde, was responsible for a lot of the Elliott Smith photographs. That didn't surprise me, because Emma. is especially stunning visually. What did surprise me was how adept de Wilde is at navigating other aspects of the production. It's not perfect, but for a new director, I was excited by many of the risks she took in tone. The casting seemed rather deft, as well.

I can't say I am familiar with Emma (except through Clueless), but this was an especially interesting take on Jane Austin. I laughed out loud several times, which is saying something.
