Emma (1996)

Directed by
Doug McGrath

The film that made Gwyneth Paltrow a star is an imaginative and witty adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel. It's the enthralling tale of a privileged young woman and her misguided attempts at matchmaking in prim and proper 18th century England. Emma Woodhouse, who has never been in love herself, is naive about matters of the heart. So when she takes under her wing the rather plain Harriet, her efforts are doomed to failure.
