Wrongly, it seems, I thought Kirsten Dunst starred in a past Emma movie adaptation.
Looking through the many adaptations of the 1815 novel by Jane Austen, I was confusing Dunst with Gwenth Paltrow! Yikes, these are two very different actresses, but they do share both being in Marvel films (Paltrow played Pepper Potts and Paltrow starred opposite Tobey Maguire in Spider-Man).
Paltrow’s Emma was a feature film in 1996.
Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along.Movie Insider Story Info for Emma
My anticipation and interest in this movie is about how I felt about Little Women before seeing it — minimal. These type movies have the greatest potential to surprise me. It’s not the movie you’re expecting to like.
How about you? Are you looking forward to seeing Emma in the theater?
Emma is opening in theaters on February 21, 2020.
