Things You Might Like About Emma(2020)
Well, nothing to talk about the story, it is a thorough adaptation of the novel by Jane Austen. A pompous rich girl who loves matchmaking and decides to take charge of each of the single ladies who are there in her circle. Her arrogance proves wrong every time where she receives a lecture by Mr. Knightly who happens to be her elder sister’s brother-in-law and her friend too. In due course of time both the leads also, opposites, feel, that there is something intense between them. However, it takes time to finally reconcile and become one.
It is a sweet and warm story that you can enjoy at any point of the day.
The smooth pastel with a warm tone generously made the screenings of the interiors amazing. You will be delighted at every take when the cinematography laid emphasis on the background more than the characters shown on the screen. Be it a walk on a sunny day, or just a simple talk over the couch, the background of each of the scenes was nicely styled by gentle light at the back.
It was nice, very apt for the age, not too slow and neither too fast. Every narrative was revealed at its liberal pace making the movie nice. You will enjoy the topic of discussion on the screen without any complication, it was minimalistically designed to make it just and not overwhelming.

It was again something which was perfect. The music director did a brilliant job in tuning those wonderful melodies. They were just charming to hear and again appropriate for the age.
Noting to say about the actors. They were ideal, exactly did, what the characters from the novel demanded. Both the leads were vivid and intense. In fact, you would like to watch more of Mr. Knightly on the screen since Johnny Flynn did his part wonderfully.

TOTT’s Take On Emma(2020)
So, Emma is something which is bright, positive, happy, shiny and definitely very nice which you will enjoy. But still, you might sense that something is missing. The actors were good, the direction is appropriate, and even the music scores were fine.
