Parents need to know that Emma. is a delightful adaptation of Jane Austen's much-beloved classic about a clever, charming young woman who can't stop meddling in her friends' love lives. It's quite tame overall, but there's a quick scene of partial nudity when Knightley (Johnny Flynn) undresses (his naked backside is shown) and another side view of Emma (Anya Taylor-Joy) as she warms her rear end near the fireplace for a moment before lowering her gown. Neither scene is sexual in nature. But characters do kiss, flirt, and talk about marriage and courtship. Characters drink socially, and Emma believes a man to be drunk. There's no strong language or violence, though one character is nearly set upon by thieves, and another gets a nosebleed. The movie, like the book, explores issues of women's roles in society, friendship and courtship across social classes, and why manipulating others, even for their own good, rarely ends well. Adapted by screenwriter Eleanor Catton and directed by photographer and music director Autumn de Wilde, the movie has themes of empathy, compassion, and learning to ask for forgiveness.
