Emma. ★★★½

Getting the obvious out of the way: as far as adaptations of Jane Austen's Emma can go, this one is good, but it's no Clueless.

But it's all the more fun watching how Autumn de Wilde can create a film that's just simply defined by its looks all around - because they all suit Austen's most sly sensibilities as a writer.

Anya Taylor-Joy for president.
