Emma (1996)
In this adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel, pretty socialite Emma Woodhouse (Gwyneth Paltrow) entertains herself by playing matchmaker for those around her. Her latest "project" is Harriet Smith, an unpretentious debutant, while Emma herself receives the attentions of the dashing Frank Churchill (Ewan McGregor). However, Emma's attempts at matchmaking cause more problems than solutions and may ultimately jeopardize her own chance at love and happiness.

SCENE 1 -HIGHBURY

NARRATOR:

In a time when one's town was one's town was one's world...and the actions

at a dance excited greater interest than the movement of armies, there

lived a young woman, who knew how this world should be runned.

EMMA:

The most beautiful thing in the world is a match well made, and a happy

marriage to you both.

MRS WESTON:

Oh, thank you Emma. Your painting grows more accomplished every day.

EMMA:

You are very kind, but it would be all the better if I had practiced my

drawing more, as you urged me.

MRS WESTON:

It's very beautiful.

MR ELTON:

I should never take sides against you, Miss Woodhouse, but your friend is

right. It is indeed a job well done.

EMMA:

The job well done, Mr Elton was yours in performing the ceremony.

MR WOODHOUSE:

Must the church be so drafty, Mr Elton? It is very difficult to surrender

the soul when one is worried about one's throat.

MR ELTON:

Perhaps some tea and cake would revive you, Mr Woodhouse.

MR WOODHOUSE:

Miss Taylor! Surely you are not serving cake at your wedding! Far too rich!

You put us all at peril. And I am not alone in feeling so. Where is Mr

Penning, the apothecary, he will support me.

MRS WESTON:

He's over there, Mr Woodhouse, having some cake.

MR WOODHOUSE:

What?!

EMMA:

I have to take father home, but dear Miss Taylor-Oh, no! You are dear Miss

Taylor no more! You are dear Mrs Weston now! And how happy this must make

you. Such happiness this brings to all of us.

MRS WESTON:

My dear Emma!
